Coming Up Roses

In This Chapter

^ Examining rose types ^ Deciding what you want your roses to do ^ Purchasing and planting roses ^ Giving the plants the care they need hat can roses do for you? Just about anything (well, anything becom-▼ ▼ ing to a plant).

Some information about roses is beyond the scope of this book, so I recommend picking up Roses For Dummies (Wiley Publishing, Inc.) if you just can't get enough of roses. There's nothing quite like enjoying the pride and pleasure of your very own!
