This special re-print edition of Rev. Joseph H. Pemberton's book "Roses: Their History, Development and Cultivation" is considered one of the most authorative guides on roses and their cultivation during the early 20th Century. Written in 1908, this classic text on roses sheds light on everything a person might wish to know about growing and caring for roses in the garden. Chapters include The Rose: The Flower of England, The Botany of the Rose, British Wild Roses, Wild Roses of Other Countries, Summer Flowering Roses, Autumn Flower Roses, The Soil and Its Treatment, Manures, Planting Roses, Pruning, Budding, Cuttings - Grafting - Layering, Raising Roses From Seeds, Growing Roses For Exhibition, Exhibiting Roses, Judging Roses, Growing Roses in Greenhouses and much more. In our opinion, one of the most authorative books on growing roses. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
