Roses for English Gardens

Author(s): Gertrude Jekyll; Edward Mawley; Graham Stuart Thomas (Editor)


First published in 1902, this book contains a vintage guide that deals with every aspect of growing roses, including planting, pruning, propagation, different varieties, climate considerations, and much more. Written in simple, clear language and full of invaluable tips, this volume is perfect for anyone with an interest in introducing roses to their garden or allotment. Contents include: "New Garden Roses," "Old Garden Roses," "The Brier Roses," "Pompon Roses," "Some of the Species as Garden Roses," "Roses on Their Own Roots," "Rose Pillars," "The Pergola," "Rose Arches and Arbours," "Rose Screens, Hedges, And Trellises," "Roses as Fountains and Growing Free," "Roses on Walls and Houses," etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
