This little book is for someone who is toying with the idea of growing roses. It offers the help needed to make the effort a pleasure. For example, it suggests that you assess how much time you have available to spend on roses. That determines which kind of roses you should choose. It helps you find the best place to plant your roses. It takes you through the steps of planting and caring for your roses, including how to winterize them. And what is quite unusual, it describes how to enjoy your roses.

The book is now in its second edition. It has been updated for jurisdictions that have banned use of fungicides and pesticides. It now provides you with alternative methods of pest and disease control.
