Covers all the most worthwhile of the Old Roses Provides valuable information on rose cultivation and propagation Written by the proprietor of one of the UK's leading rose nurseries Garden Art Press published David Austin's The Rose, covering roses of all types and ages from the earliest known forms to modern roses of today. This handy pocket-sized title includes the material in that publication dealing with Old Roses, among them the lovely Gallica, Damask, Alba, Centifolia, Moss, China, Portland, Bourbon and Hybrid Perpetual Roses. Illustrated throughout with a riot of magnificent color photographs, this indispensable guide contains important information on rose cultivation with valuable advice on soil preparation, planting, pruning, feeding, diseases and pests. Many of the photographs included here are new to this book, and include breeds not illustrated in The Rose. Coming from one of the UK's foremost experts on roses, this advice can only add to the undoubted value and importance of this most useful and attractive book. David Austin is uniquely equipped to write books on roses. As a commercial rose grower, he is in continual contact with gardeners and as a hybridizer he is in touch with agents who sell and propagate his English Roses worldwide - from Japan, Australia and New Zealand to the USA and Canada. His garden at Albrighton, near Wolverhampton, contains one of the finest collections of roses in the world, containing more than 800 varieties. He was awarded the Victoria Medal of Honor by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2003 and the Dean Hole Medal by the Royal National Rose Society.
