Roses Without Chemicals: 150 Disease-Free Varieties That Will Change the Way You Grow Roses, Peter Kukielski
2 Roses Without Chemicals: 150 Disease-Free Varieties That Will Change the Way You Grow Roses
Peter Kukielski USA Timber Press 2015 1604693541 / 9781604693546 Soft cover New Book 
Spray no more! Roses have a reputation for being finicky garden plants that require chemicals and fertilizers to stay healthy and disease free. Fortunately, recent breeding efforts have produced disease-resistant varieties that perform beautifully in all kinds of conditions. Peter E. Kukielski, former curator of the award-winning rose garden at the New York Botanical Garden, highlights 150 of these tough, new varieties, rating them for disease resistance, flowering, and fragrance. He also tells which perform best in each region and teaches simple cultivation techniques that will result in gorgeous, easy-care gardens filled with healthy roses. About the Author Peter E. Kukielski is the former curator of Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden New York Botanical Garden. He implemented a 2007 renovation project of the Rose Garden with a new mission based on disease resistance and sustainability. Under Peter's leadership, the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden received the Great Rosarians of the World Rose Garden Hall of Fame Award for 2010 and was voted "America's Best Public Rose Garden Display' by the All American Rose Selections (AARS) committee. Peter came to New York from Atlanta, Georgia, where for over 10 years he owned and operated a Rose Garden Business called The Rose Petaler, Inc. Peter was the primary consultant on the new Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden Rose Garden in Richmond, Virginia, which was featured on the cover of American Rose magazine. Peter is contributor and co-editor of The Sustainable Rose Garden - A Reader in Rose Culture.
