I laugh when I see some of these lists. The best of the best is often ignored.

Lobstergirl Some of my choices are more aspirational than practical...


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

It looks like more have been added. This is a good thing. To me, you have to go far to beat the month-by-month book by the original 'Crockett's Victory Garden', & 'The Country Garden' by Josephine Nuese. There are a couple of others, both old and out of print that I refer to religiously.

Any of the 'Ortho' rose books are an excellent source for rose information & care. These books, in soft cover, are updated every few years to include the newer offerings in the world of roses and are a great resource. In my opinion, they are more thorough than any of the American Rose Society publications.

Yup! As a rose beginner, those are most helpful to me.

I was thinking the same. So many of the books I have are not even mentioned. So many I have read also not mentioned

Ann, everyone can add books to these lists -- feel free to do so! All it takes is clicking on the "add books" tab above (next to "all votes"), performing a search (either from among your own bookshelves or from the entire Goodreads database), and clicking on "vote for this book" for every book you would like to add! :)

Phee Themis-Athena/All thank you for the suggestions. I have added a few contributions most of which do cater for the growing zones in North America. If anyone needs inspiration for being brave about using colour (as I was ) I recommend the Sarah Raven book. Marina Christopher sadly does not seem to be as well know but has written a beautiful book for gardeners like me who have struggled with what to do after the late roses have faded beyond adding a few dahlias.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) You're welcome -- it's not my list, though (Laura created it) ... I merely explained how everybody can add books! :)
