Many people think roses are difficult to grow. Peter Schneider puts that fear to rest by showing you that when it comes to roses, it’s all about location, location, location. The right rose will thrive when planted in the perfect spot. Right Rose, Right Place is an inspiring yet practical book that encourages both new and experienced gardeners to make the most of roses in hedges and privacy screens, on trellises, in flower beds, as container plants, and in many more ordinary yard settings. Gardeners in colder climates will find ample information on hardy shrub and heritage roses, the backbone plants of the author's own garden in Ohio, where he grows 1,200 different roses. Easy to follow step-by-step instructions and more than 400 beautiful full-color photographs make Right Rose, Right Place a joy to read and implement.
