Bookshelf: Gardening with Perennials:

Easy Roses for North American Gardens
Tom Christopher has done a very nice job in putting this book together. 151 cultivars are noted, with picture and profile. Zones are included and so are the Canadian and U.S. suppliers! Advice appears from rose growing experts in both countries including roses that grow best in their particular areas.

Soil prep, planting, maintainance, pests & diseases, propagating and pruning are all found and as a treat gardens in Canada that Trevor Cole finds a great source of roses on display are listed.

A wonderful gift for the amateur rose grower!
