The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Book
Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World. Take time and smell the roses. Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states. Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place. So visit Rose Gardening World often.
For the inveterate rosarian, The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Book is a good reference book. This book is not light reading. It is an in-depth treatise I might say on roses. It is more of an encyclopedia of roses. I love it because you can really go into the history of different kinds of roses.
The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Book is substantially revised with lots of information on Old Garden Roses. Besides the usual beautiful photograph of roses, there are also some black and white drawings of roses that are really exquisite.
