Have to Spray Chemicals on My Rosebushes

You don't have to spray chemicals on your roses — if you choose the right rose bush in the first place. Find out the main problem in your area: Rust? Mildew? Insect pests? Jealous, scheming neighbors? Then get good advice on resistant rose varieties. Rose breeders have been answering the call for tougher plants, so often some of the brand new ones are good choices. Oldies-but-goodies, especially naturally durable shrub roses, are also worth looking into. See Chapter 9 for more-detailed information, or look for the information on these Web sites: www.organicrosegardening.com/ index.html or socialsciences.ucsc.edu/casfs/publications/ rose_primer.html
