    Informative, funny, and well written book about growing roses as garden plants. This book is written to offer information about growing roses as garden plants rather than high maintenance, have to be sprayed with chemicals, divas. It is written in an easy to read, informative and humorous manner that will keep you interested and reading to the very last page. The photos are beautiful, plentiful, and offer views of roses grown in gardens with other plants as well as in mass plantings. Easy to understand information is given (as well as demonstrated) about planting, pruning, feeding, and training all the different types of roses. Emphasis is placed on growing roses using natural products instead of chemicals. If you think that roses are too hard to grow, you need this book.

    A Great Rose Guide for All Of Us I probably have read ten books about roses. Everyday Roses is by far the best. The author takes the position that the typical gardener finds rose growing too difficult. He then goes on to identify those easy-care roses which can be the stars of your landscape and provides simple instructions for their care.The format of the book makes it easy to use. Highlighted Tips and Myths provide quick reference points. The pictures are spectacular. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow roses with less time, expense, chemicals and disappointment.

    Make room on your bookshelf! At last! A concise, fun read about growing and caring for roses with an emphasis on their use in the garden as plants. Although there’s sufficient detail offered to aid a rose exhibitor, Zimmerman speaks to a much wider audience as he focuses on how rose plants bring life to an overall garden plan. The book is filled with rich, bright photographs from gardens around the world, sufficient in themselves as tabletop eye candy, but beyond the beauty, each image offers a clear example of the author’s recommendations on what to plant as well as how and why. With expertise tempered by a great sense of humor, Everyday Roses deserves a place on every gardener’s bookshelf. I was especially happy to see links to Zimmerman’s how-to YouTube videos (which I love!) as well as resources for connecting with other gardeners and suppliers.
