Old Roses by Graham Murphy

This series of books celebrates some of the most beautiful, oldest and well-loved flowers. Each book in the series looks at a different theme and, through images by leading flower photographers, reveals overlooked cultivars or rare species. Before looking at over 30 different species, each book investigates the plant in history, art, perfume and medicine. Practical information is included in each book. From pruning and plantings, to suppliers' contact information and which National Trust gardens feature the plant. Old Roses - The passion for roses has been with us for centuries, from the ancient Persians through to the Crusaders who introduced them to Europe. This book looks at their fascinating history and informs the reader to which old-fashioned roses are suitable for modern gardens.


The author s ability for storytelling . . . lends particular charm to his informative passages.
