About the Author
As a young married woman living in California, a more temperate climate, I began to surround my own home with flowers - agapanthus, impatiens, primroses, bougainvillea, sweet alyssum, etc. Digging in the dirt and watching the flowers bloom gave me a special kind of pleasure.
Even though I loved roses, I always thought they would be far too difficult to grow, so I never tried. Finally a few years ago, I took the plunge and have never looked back. My yard is now filled with roses.
My first book, Growing Roses, Everything You Need to Know, and More . . . is my way of sharing with you what I learned from my experience. The main lesson is, that growing roses is not difficult.
I hope that you will give yourself the gift of a rose garden, which can be nothing more than a single bush that will give you pleasure day-after-day, as my mother's potted plants gave her.
