About this book

This is an illustrated guide to varieties, cultivation and care, with step-by-step instructions and over 160 beautiful photographs. It provides everything you need to know at a glance in one handy and richly illustrated practical guide. It offers a full photographic directory of more than 50 climbing roses, from ramblers and large types to shorter varieties.

For each variety, full botanical information is provided on history, growth, hue, height, spread and suitability. It includes step-by-step guidance on planting, propagation and pruning, and how to deal with common pests and diseases. It includes instructions on fixing trellises or vine eyes to secure plants on a wall, planting against a tree, and growing in containers with canes or bamboo supports. It is a highly accessible guide to some of the most popular and best-loved plants, celebrating their scent and beauty. The breathtaking beauty of climbing roses makes them an indispensable part of the garden – at the height of summer, they put on a display of amazing brilliance. Because they come in such a wonderful range of sizes and hues that represent almost the entire spectrum of the rainbow, there is a climbing rose for every situation.

Climbing Roses explains how to use these flowering plants to their best advantage, covering their history, a guide to the different shapes, and exciting design ideas. A fully illustrated directory of 50 varieties gives botanical descriptions and planting ideas, and a grower's guide will ensure success with these beautiful climbing plants.
