Sustainable Rose Garden – WFRS Literary Award Winner

We’re pleased to announce that the The Sustainable Rose Garden: A Reader in Rose Culture by Pat Shanley, Peter Kukielski and Gene Waering was awarded the 2012 World Federation of Rose Societies Literary Award.

In describing the work, the WFRS writes,

This book brings together experts from around the world to inform gardeners about developments in the new trend toward creating environmentally friendly yet enduring rose gardens with “sustainability” as the key. This means gardening that is consciously aware of the dangerous health and environmental risks posed by using traditional synthetic chemicals and pesticides.
