Reader's note

Roses are our national flower and widely grown as any flower in this country. There is a great variety in roses, including the Hybrid tea roses with large and perfectly modelled blooms; the shrub roses with looser habit and smaller flowers, a form of rose which is especially suitable for modern labour saving gardens; the floribunda roses which keep up a display throughout the very long season; and finally the old roses of our forefathers, which have recently come back into popularity and are proving again such good garden plants. This is the first in a series of Gardening books in which the horticultural society and Penguin books have collaborated in. This book is filled with monochrome photographs and offers a unique insight and information on every breed of rose; the perfect gift for the gardener in your life!
