RosesA ROSARIAN'S library all in one book, the new Yates reference guide Roses is an excellent source of useful rose-growing advice. It follows the history of roses, tells how to identify the main categories, has an comprehensive, colour-coded gallery of blooms - with cultivation requirements and growth characteristics - as well as chapters on how to grow and enjoy your roses, with recipes for rose oils, vinegars, jams and wines. A worthy investment.
