"Nearly forty years ago The Old Shrub Roses (1955) brought to public attention the favorite roses of the early nineteenth century, the intensely scented Damasks, the rich and sombre Gallicas, the Albas with their unique combination of elegance and thriftiness - all ancient races rediscovered with the help of nurserymen and aficionados in the United States. Over the following ten years Graham Thomas did the same for other neglected groups. Shrub Roses of Today (1962) identified the species and hybrids from Japan and North America, from English and Scottish hedgerows and from the mountains of China, full of virtues then unrecognized. It also described the roses of the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, the Chinas and hybrid Musks redolent of lace-encrusted tea gowns and weekend house parties of the Golden Age. To complete the picture and indicate alternatives to the garish and formless Floribundas, Climbing Roses Old and New (1965) considered ramblers and climbers of more grace and subtlety like 'Adelaide d'Orleans', ideal for a tall archway, or 'Desprez a fleur jaune' now more than 150 years old but still incomparable in covering a large wall with silky blooms and filling the garden with scent twice a year." "During the intervening years there have been 22 editions and reprints of these classics, but Christopher Lloyd noted one practical shortcoming: "It is no use having just one of his rose volumes, you must have all three ... and the trio must not be scattered in different parts of the house." The Graham Stuart Thomas Rose Book solves this problem by bringing the trilogy together, substantially revised and updated. New material has been added, practical advice is included on planting, general cultivation, pruning, and display, and new photographs complement favorite illustrations from such master hands as Redoute and Graham Thomas himself."--Jacket

"It is not likely that anyone has restored and maintained as many gardens as has Graham Stuart Thomas, at castles such as Powis, Scotney, and Sizergh; at parks such as Sheffield, Tatton, and Stourhead; and at much-visited gems such as Hidcote Manor, Sissinghurst, and Snowshill. In The Garden Through the Year Thomas offers not only his vast experience as horticultural advisor to the National Trust for these great gardens, but also the discerning eye of one who filled his own small garden with the best of everything."--Jacket
