The rose is one of the most popular and celebrated of flowers and recent years have seen a revival of interest in the old cottage-garden varieties, with their lovely scent and full-petalled flowers in soft colours. This book helps readers to recreate the joys of these earlier gardens by giving ideas for planting roses. Divided into four main sections, it includes: a directory of 130 of the finest old roses including shrub roses such as gallicas, bourbons, centifolias, mosses, chinas and polyanthas, as well as climbers - and their planting uses; creative ideas for companion planting with roses; designing with old roses, including rose arches and rose hedges; and pruning and the general care of old roses.
