I've always thought about writing a rose book, but was never actually certain it would come about. About a year and a half ago I talked to the folks at Taunton Press about doing one based in large part of my blog posts. In book form I would be able to expand on my writings and include more detailed information.
With the support of the good folks at Conard-Pyle it is now officially here. The book covers how to grow garden roses in a garden setting. I wrote it with gardeners in mind who simply want to include some roses in their overall planting scheme.
The book debunks a lot of the "roses are complicated to grow" myths, which should come as no suprise to readers of this blog!
Enjoy the short commercial and hopefully also the book. Before I close this I would like to thank Taunton Press and Conard-Pyle for making this happen. More than anyone though, I want to thank you, the readers of this blog for all your wonderful feedback and support.

Everyone loves roses. If you always wanted to add roses to your garden but were too intimidated by their diva reputation, Roses Are Plants, Too is the blog for you.
Paul Zimmerman has grown thousands of roses for over 15 years and for ten of those years in a sustainable manner. His common-sense approach shows you how to integrate garden roses into your landscape by looking at them as nothing more than flowering shrubs, all the while encouraging you to trust your own "Gardener's Instincts" in the care of these beautiful plants.
You will learn how to prune and train climbing roses, and how to get the most "ka-bloom" out of your shrub, David Austin and Knockout rose bushes. You'll get tips on growing roses organically and trimming them all season to keep their shape. You'll discover the difference between own-root and grafted roses, and more. Much of the instruction will be via videos that Paul produces himself!
Paul Zimmerman ran a rose care company in Los Angeles before moving to South Carolina to start Ashdown Roses. Now he focuses on rose education and teaching via Paul Zimmerman Roses. He lectures, gives workshops, and judges rose trials around the world, and it is this experience he brings to this blog.
Whether you are new to roses or an experienced grower, Paul will open your garden to the vast diversity our national flower offers.
