Books Info:

Old Fashioned and David Austin Roses free pdf When you are hooked by old-fashioned roses, it is the beginning of a love affair that will last a lifetime. They bring you not only fragrance and beauty, but fascinating tales from the past. When you plant an old-fashioned rose, you plant history. There is no mystique about growing roses, old or new, and there are roses to enhance every aspect of landscaping - riotous ramblers that fling themselves about, roses that climb sedately, shrub roses of substance, roses for hedges high or low, roses that are comfortable in beds, well-mannered roses for patios and pots, groundcover roses that scramble and trail. In this practical book for gardeners, some of the most popular old-fashioned roses and David Austin English roses are described. They have been placed in basic groups, such as Albas, Centifolias, Hybrid perpetuals, Moss Roses, for easy reference and are accompanied by information on planting, pruning, pests and diseases and general care. There is also a chapter with suggestions for landscaping with roses.
