In this RHS Practical guide every type of rose is looked at: hybrid teas, shrub roses, climbers, ramblers and the more specialised growing methods for standards and swags. Clearly illustrated with lavish photographs it is the perfect introduction to this vast genus. The tricky problem of pruning, a subject that can cause many horticultural arguments, is concisely covered, eliminating the many misconceptions that have arisen over the years. Concluding with a gallery of roses, this small book manages to convey every pertinent fact necessary for the cultivation of this endearing and enduring flower. - Lucy Watson
