The rose has a reputation for being a fussy plant to grow successfully. The novice gardener has heard about the difficulties of pruning, the need for fertilizer and mulching, and about the many insects and diseases that attack roses. In this video, Ed Hume sets out to dispel those notions. The author and TV garden show host gives expert advice on how to select the right kind of roses from the many varieties available. He also discusses when to fertilize, when to prune, and what to do about the insects that will chew the leaves and eat the flowers.
