Roses are eternal. With over 50 000 different rose varieties in existence today, there is a rose to suit every garden and every taste. Ludwig Taschner's Roses is a guide to identifying, growing and caring for roses. The title is divided into two parts, the first focusing on rose growth and care and the second on the many different varieties of roses and colourscaping. Part one includes advice on suitable conditions for growing roses; soil preparation; watering and fertilizing; pest and disease control; rose health; pruning; and cutting and arranging roses in vases. Part Two focuses on the naming of roses; hybrids and sports; different rose groups and types; and colourscaping with roses, be it in formal garden designs, informal designs, mass plantings or the creation of focal points with specimen roses. The entire title is filled with colour photographs of examples of individual roses, displays and a wide variety of rose gardens to enthuse and inspire.
