Renegade Gardener: Top Pick
University of Minnesota Press continues its stellar series of revised and updated plant books that began last year with Growing Perennials in Cold Climates, followed by Growing Shrubs and Small Trees in Cold Climates. Here now is the third and final entry: Growing Roses in Cold Climates. Different book, same result: an indispensable reference guide for gardeners of all ages and talent levels.
The original version of this book was published in 1998, so an updated version was well overdue. More than 875 varieties of roses proven to thrive in northern climates are included, with the book reflecting the many new and improved varieties that have entered the scene over the past 14 years.
