Mr. Taylor has written an unpretentious yet gorgeous book about roses. He writes eloquently about roses, from old garden to quite modern, with frankness and candor. This is not a man who is writing for a buck or a trend. The photographs are gorgeous, the suggestions for settings and companion plantings are wonderful, and he mentions flaws (awkward growth? disease? thorniness?) that other sources do not. I subsequently took a number of his suggestions and exercised them. It's particularly good for people who want or have spaces for a few roses, and would like to avoid mistakes, as opposed to the collector who has hundreds of roses and can afford errors. Very highly recommended.
