Summary
"Osborne shares his decades of experience raising roses without any chemicals in some of the coldest winters. Roses need not be intimidating and doomed to inevitable failure, regardless of the climate. With this ... guide, northern gardeners can enjoy that early snowstorm confident that their carefully tended roses will survive. For this new edition of his classic guide, Osborne has fully revised and updated his text.
