Like its highly-respected companion in the series, Old Roses, this title draws the most useful information from David Austin's 'The Rose' and focuses on English Roses, bred by David Austin to combine the sumptuousness of Old Roses with the strength and practical virtues of Modern Roses. It will be greatly prized by rose-growers and rose-lovers everywhere, whether professional or amateur, and includes new colour photography.
