The art of growing beautiful roses is something anyone can master. Whether you are looking to start an entire garden from scratch or simply keep this vigorously growing plant properly pruned, expert advice can help you achieve a beautiful result.
Author Tom Liggett was classically trained in the full spectrum of rose cultivation. Since most of the once-great rose nurseries have disappeared, hundreds of years’ worth of knowledge now rests only with Tom.
The key to pruning these plants in a healthy way is to understand exactly how they grow. Beginning with cell biology, Liggett covers all the information a gardener needs to know, including types of climbers and ways to use them, tying methods and materials, and selecting plants for various sizes of structures.
This comprehensive manual offers gentle guidance free from technical jargon and complicated instructions. Often the best way to begin learning is by watching others, but a small amount of background knowledge goes a long way.
