David Austin is a legend among the world's greatest authorities on roses.
This is an excellent book on Old Roses, well written, with good information on the varieties selected, with gorgeous color pictures,
David Austin is one of the best known authorities in the world of roses, the creator of the class of roses known as English Roses, and the book is a great addition for any rose lover, particularly those interested in the historical roses, also known as Old Garden Roses. There is a world of great beauty awaiting to those who are willing to try these wonderful plants. People who watch classic movies from the 30s and the 40s, for example, have seen those big white roses used again and again in such films as Mrs. Miniver and others, and that rose is included in this book (see p. 160). Even if you don't have your own "secret garden." you will have great fun with this book. It doesn't include one of my favorites, 'Mme Louis Leveque', but no rose book can include anybody's all favorites, since there are more than 10,000 varieties still in the market! Get the book and enjoy it!
