    Rose Gardening As an avid rose gardener I found this book by Better Homes and Gardens okay, but definitely not the ultimate rose guide I was looking for. It does have nice colorful pictures of roses, but the one area that all rose enthusiasts’ deal with and the one that frustrates me the most is all the nasty pests and fungus that attack our roses. I would have liked a much bigger section on dealing with pests, and way more pictures of the various afflictions and methods of dealing with them. I was sold on the facts that it had a stamp of approval from the American Rose Society AND that it comes with a 1 year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens, so that, combined with the price I paid for it on Amazon, make it worth the purchase.

    This is one of the very best rose book for a novice or an expert. Very clear. More modern than some others about soil, technieques. I you need to learn or confirm the basics, the is a wonderful book. The rose gallery in it is very good.
