The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Roses: The Art and Science to Grow with Confidence by ROYAL BOTANIC GARDENS KEW

This inspirational book from Kew Gardens' rose expert is the perfect guide to choosing and growing these majestic and versatile flowers

Instantly recognisable, fragrant and evocative, roses are the quintessential garden flowers. From low-growing ground-cover roses to long-stemmed Hybrid Tea roses, multi-petalled English roses, wild roses, small shrubs for containers, climbers and ramblers, in a range of forms, colours and scents, there is a rose for every garden situation.

Combining botanical illustrations and practical advice, The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Roses is the definitive introduction to growing seventy-eight beautiful roses, with full growing instructions and details on feeding, propagation and training.

Twelve garden projects, from growing from seed to preserving rose petals, will bring the wonderful world of roses to life.
