The love of flowers is universal, one of the simple but beautiful things of life that cannot be destroyed even by the mechanization, noise, and overcrowding of modern cities. There are approximately five thousand varieties of roses being grown today, but it is not the number of roses that the gardener grows that matters; it is the pleasure he gets from growing them. This book was written with a hope that it may help some people to grow better roses, and that, in doing so, they may gain pleasure and some degree of satisfaction. Complete satisfaction is never achieved by a good gardener; he is always striving to improve his results.
