Abstract:

We hear roses are hard to grow. ... We hear they require constant care and treatment. ... Depending on where we live, we hear they can't stand the heat ... the cold ... the humidity ... the arid air. The list of reasons not to grow roses is long, yet we persevere.-from the first chapterMost gardeners have tried, with more or less success, to grow roses. For a plant that has been in cultivation all over the world for millennia, roses have an oddly persistent reputation for being finicky and disease-prone, difficult to establish, and in need of constant tending.
