Reviews - What do our customers think?
A book to suit Australia too  Jun 12, 2008
This is the best rose guide book that I have seen and suits Australian conditions well. I often recommend it, in fact I bought a little stockpile so I could give it to rosie friends. Liz Druitt has a charming writing style and has obviously amassed a great deal of experience growing these roses. I found the references to how healthy particular roses are especially useful as it is an area often ignored in other books. The only disappointing aspect of this book is the photography which is uninspiring to say the least. Never mind, there are plenty of books with fabulous photos, but good down to earth advice is much harder to come by.
great resource book-not just for organic folks  May 22, 2008
The extensive photos with full description of roses makes this book worth the price alone. I also really liked the pages devoted to the "Quick Reference Chart" that gives each roses' qualities (size, fragrance, color, repeat bloom, etc).

(minor point: Crepescule, a wonderful heirloom rose seems to be missing).

This book is a MUST for every heirloom rose gardener south of the Mason-Dixon line including California of course :-)
Best for a limited audience  May 27, 2004
The paperback edition of this book may differ in format from the hardback edition. In the paperback edition, the color pictures are small and of poor quality. Photos intended to illustrate particular techniques (weaving a climbing rose on a pillar, for instance) are simply too small to provide any visual information at all. Not all roses are pictured, which is a drawback in a book that leans heavily on older roses.

There's a good index, which is helpful, because one ends up having to consult it often to pull together information about specific roses. Rather than include all data about zones, shade tolerance, size and more in each alphabetized annotation, there is a cumbersome table cross-referenced by class. Within the annotations, the author includes such observations as "more than worth the wait" and "I think this rose is really cute". Not everyone will find such informality off-putting, of course.

The book is not a useful survey for gardeners in places cooler than Zone 6. Given the constraints of the author's experiences and apparent research, perhaps the book would be of greatest interest and use to those in the author's home state of Texas.

A charming chapter on rose recipes, which really should be contemplated only by organic rose gardeners, concludes the book.

Pragmatic with a dash of humor....  Feb 24, 2001
You might want to read THE ORGANIC ROSE GARDEN by Liz Druitt even if you aren't planning on growing roses. Druitt has a wonderful sense of humor. For example, she says the rugosa rose must require a great deal of nitrogen since it has thorns designed to extract human blood. Each of the entries for her list of 100 is written in a friendly, helpful, and folksy way, helpful and not hokey.

Druitt's book contains a handy "Quick Reference Chart for Garden Form" with information organized by height: name; color; fragrance (***); size; repeat bloom; hips; shade tolerance; and Best in zones (4-9). The entries for roses in alpha order follow this chart.

Since ROSES was written for organic gardening, the reader is advised on organic methods. In a section entitled "Getting and Planting Roses" she describes the preliminary tasks the gardener must undertake to ensure she starts with good stock. She covers purchasing, layering, planting in containers and climbing roses. In "Maintaining the Roses" the reader learns about weeding, watering, fertilizing, pruning and seasonal care. In "Trouble Shooting" the author deals with pests. Because this is an organic book we learn about beneficial insects, nectary and shelter plants, and hedgerow barriers (to keep out the deer). Pests include the neighbor's dog (get a fence), fire ants (get the hormone 'Logic'); and other bugs--plant dill, garlic, or get out the hose.

All in all, this book is solid gold for the new or the old rose gardener and I recommend it.

Excellent Rose Guide for the South  Dec 26, 1999
This book is truly excellent if you live below the Mason-Dixon line and are just starting out with roses. She gives detailed coverage of a great many roses well adapted to the South, as well as growing roses without a lot of chemicals. I like this book so much, I carry it with me when I travel (which I do 3 wks/month), which tells you something. Beautiful pictures, good details on roses and great advice. I highly recommend this esp. if you are new to roses.
