Ce livre est une référence pour tous ceux qui aiment les roses, anciennes comme modernes, même si l'on s'aperçoit très facilement combien les vieilles variétés encore en culture ont la préférence de l'auteur.
Quel plaisir de constater que le nom des roses françaises est toujours correctement orthographié et que de pertinence dans les descriptions !
On aurait aimé un peu plus de photos pour rendre vraiment précieux ce très beau livre, parfaitement écrit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book for rose historians or other rose gardeners 27 juin 2002
Par Amy Goebel Padgett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love this book, but found it a little daunting when I first unwrapped it. It is not your standard "lots of beautiful pictures" book. There are a few pictures, but they are not particularly good. It is the writing and the information contained that make this book so valuable. I keep it on my bedside table now and browse through it regularly, to read the fascinating histories and yummy descriptions of roses.
One thing that makes this book so excellent is the beautiful writing and the fact that he includes text and information from older rose resources/material that would be difficult to find without going to an extensive library. It is informative and gives detailed histories of old garden roses with descriptions that truly give you a feel for the roses. There is a rich section on propagation and the cultivation of roses, as well, although I found this less interesting than the historical information. I am particularly interested in Moss roses and this book had excellent material relating to the development of this type of rose, as well as all the other categories such as Portlands, Gallicas, Albas, etc. If you are confused by the categories, you cannot find a better source for explaining how these classes are different and how they may have come into being. I highly recommend it for people who are interested in history and development of roses. I have not seen a better book in this category, and I have quite a number of rose books.
If you are fascinated with the history of the rose, you should get this book--I read this time and time again when considering additions to my garden or when I simply want to know more about the old garden roses I grow and get the characterists of the various classes of rose straight in my mind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Rose Reference Work 1 mai 2000
Par Amy Goebel Padgett - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book has turned into my best and most accurate reference on roses, especially historical roses. Graham S. Thomas has given fascinating and thorough information on the development of roses. I have also found his descriptions of many varieties of roses to be supurb and thorough. Gardeners who prefer a more lush and informal style of gardening will also appreciate his information on growing roses as he doesn't carry pruning to the extreme that so many gardening books advise. On the whole, if you are interested in the history of roses and growing Old Garden Roses, you must get this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's Not a Picture Book - But it is Very Good 19 octobre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
If you are a rose-lover who lives from show to show, this book is not likely to please. Nor is it likely to be a good book first book for people new to roses. Firstly, it is not a picture book, though it does have some of the best rose photos to be found in books. Secondly it is not about the "hot" roses of today Hybrid Teas, Floribundas, and Miniatures.
Graham Stuart Thomas started out growing such roses, but in his early twenties he was visited by Constance Spry, an Old Rose lover who changed the way he looked at roses. Thomas has spent the rest of his life preserving, promoting, and documenting Old Roses, Shrub Roses, and Climbing Roses. His studies have honed his aesthetic sensibilities. And it is these keen sensibilities that inform this book. We can rely on Thomas to tell us not just the features and history of a rose, but to relate to us how he feels about it. It is this judgement that makes the book extremely valuable.
As we mentioned, the book has a section of one or two hundred photographs and watercolor paintings. These are classic photos, of whole plants. They teach us how the roses will look as garden plants. And as such they are more valuable than a ten thousand photos of single hybrid tea blossoms.
It is easy to recommend this book to anyone who wishes to learn how to choose good, gardenworthy roses that work as landscape plants. Any well-rounded rose grower really should have spent some hours perusing its pages.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Book About Roses, Period. 7 juillet 2001
Par Ispahan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
One of the previous reviews said that this book is "not for the gardener." Perhaps it is not for the general, whining newby who can't tell the difference between a hybrid tea and a gallica or the lazy reader who can't get past any book that isn't slopped about with gaudy, glossy photographs and illustrations. But it *is* for the TRUE gardener who appreciates substance over style and really wants to learn about all that roses have to offer. The information contained in this book is priceless, charming and soul-satisfying. If you want a basic rose book with those goofy illustrated directions for planting a rose or identifying black spot, then please drive to Wal-Mart and pick one up there. If, however, you have outgrown the Ortho series (or the equivalent) and want something a bit more...wonderful...then please look no farther than G.S. Thomas and his unsurpassed trilogy of rose books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Used copy in great condition and fabulous price 23 août 2013
Par ClassicsForMe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Designing a classic garden with herbs, perennials, boxwood, and of course, roses. Read Graham Stuart Thomas's The Old Shrub Roses and loved it. Very informative regarding history of roses as well as growing habits of individual roses. Thrilled to find this book compiling three of his classic books in an updated version. Even more excited about the condition and price of the used book - like new and very inexpensive. Already have many expenses with plants, tools, soil amendments, etc. so really appreciate the book. Arrived early, too!
