Synopsis: Often called the “king of roses,” Peter Beales is the world’s most acclaimed professional rose grower, and this book is the distillation of his 50 years of experience and knowledge into one essential volume. Within these handsomely illustrated pages is Beales’s unequalled advice on landscaping with roses as well as care and cultivation―all based upon his decades of experience breeding and selling the world’s finest roses.
There is a rose for every budget and every garden style, and this is the ideal book to use in selecting the perfect rose. Roses come in every size from miniatures just right for containers to the expansive climbing roses. The first part of the book explains the six different major groups of roses and profiles the best cultivars in each category. Peter Beales describes the best landscape uses for each rose, details their pros and cons, and describes their care. Interwoven throughout are his charming yet fascinating personal observations and reminiscences recalling experiences with roses, notable gardeners, and important breeders.
The last section of the book is an encyclopedic directory of roses that includes full color close-up pictures of each rose in full bloom, detailed descriptions, planting suggestions, hardiness factors, and information on care, cultivation, pests, and diseases. This sumptuously illustrated volume by Peter Beales will be the definitive guide to gardening with roses for years to come.

About the Author: Peter Beales has been growing roses at his nursery for decades, supplying the discerning rose lover in America and throughout the world with the world’s finest rose specimens. His roses have won prizes worldwide, and he is currently serving as president of the Royal National Rose Society in the UK. In 2003, Peter Beales was awarded the highest accolade in the rose world: the Royal Horticultural Society Victory Medal of Honour. He lives and works at his nursery in Norfolk, England.
