A practical book for lovers of old roses. This book shows how valuable old roses can be in garden planning and planting schemes. A brief history and classification is followed by detailed coverage of their uses in a range of situations, and for various purposes. They feature in gardens of all sizes, in shady woodland areas, on trees or pillars, arches and pergolas, as decoration for hedges, as ground cover and in containers, for disguising old sheds and bare walls, for hips or perfume, and for picking and arranging. Advice is also offered on how to succeed with old roses in poor soils or on difficult sites. Photographs and plant lists offer inspiration for companion planting, and information is given on buying, planting, pruning, propagation, pests and diseases. A calendar for northern and southern hemispheres reminds gardeners when to perform the necessary tasks and explains how to plan for along flowering season.
