  • By Bruce Waymark on 2 July 2017

    A great little book. Nothing complicated - perfect for those with little or no experience. Written in an easy style to read, if at times a little colloquial for British readers. Glad I picked up a copy.

    A very good book to aquire a knowledge of roses lists most varieties with lots of helpful advice.

  • By Ty from Wales on 20 June 2017

    As an avid and interested rose keeper, I wanted a book filled with no nonsense, informative tips to help make my garden grow. This book is perfect for just that. Ms. Cordell is extremely knowledgeable about the health and history of these much beloved, yet complex breed of plants. I was also most impressed by her Attenborough like savvy regarding the different wild life and bugs that can help or hinder said plants. This is a guide I feel I'll be looking to many times in future. Also, Ms. Cordell, how long does a fish plant take to properly establish?
