Encyclopedia of Roses The Royal Horticultural Society

Charles Quest-Ritson has travelled the world in pursuit of the rose and distils over 20 years experience of roses, as a grower, lecturer, trials judge and author in this indispensible reference book.

The heart of the book is a magnificent A-Z catalogue of over 2,000 of the best rose species and cultivars grown worldwide. Each entry is illustrated with a full-colour photograph and describes the rose’s growing habit, cultivation needs and breeding as well as explaining the origin of its unique name. In addition, special feature panels showcase the world’s best-loved roses. A comprehensive introduction leads the reader through the fascinating history of the rose, while the practical reference section challenges the belief that roses are delicate and difficult to grow. Specially commissioned photographs show, step-by-step, the latest simplified methods of cultivation and demonstrate that growing roses can be easy and enjoyable.

Destined to become every gardener’s rose bible.
