Roses for the Smaller Garden contains an extraordinary presentation of close-up photographic portraits of the best roses--all available in America--for restricted space gardens. Seasoned gardeners, beginners about to create a first rose garden, and fans of roses as cut flowers will be inspired by photographs of over eighty choice selections of exquisite, life-size rose portraits by Linda Burgess, internationally renowned as the best garden and still-life flower portraitist today. Not just a beauty pageant, this book is as practical as it is inspirational. And it is the first book to delineate species and designs for growing roses in confined landscapes. Replete with a wealth of sources, there are comprehensive and up-to-date facts about: recently introduced rose types and hybrids, creative ideas for choosing the most suitable varieties and plant shapes, and designing and making the best use of them. Exciting, essential and authoritative, this book is sure to appeal to gardeners who value roses for their romantic beauty, their color and their scent but who have smaller plots, a busier lifestyle and a more relaxed approach to planting. Inspirational yet practical, it makes rose growing exciting and seductive but shows how simple it can be. Roses for the Smaller Garden stands alone in the advice it gives on roses for compact outdoor spaces and in the glamorous allure of rose portraits specially photographed by Linda Burgess and described by horticultural expert, Mark Mattock.
