Here are excerpts from some of the reviews of "Showing Good Roses"
"This is not just the most comprehensive rose exhibiting manual anyone could imagine, it is one of the best rose books I have ever read. From the moment the rose gardener begins to contemplate exhibiting to the afternoon when he walks into a national show to discover one of his entries up on the trophy table, this book will be a invaluable guide." Peter Schneider, Mantua, Ohio (Editor, the Combined Rose List and the revised edition of Taylor's Guide to Roses, author of Peter Schneider on Roses.)
"Early on it became clear that this book would be more than the stated ‘….complete exhibitor’s guide.’ It quickly established itself as the standard consulting reference for the elements of the exhibiting world." Jim Delahanty, Sherman Oaks, California (Editor ARS and You)
"... tells everything anyone ever wanted to know about growing, grooming and exhibiting roses from miniatures to Old Garden Roses (especially if you ever want to take your roses to America). ... show enthusiasm mixed with expertise." Sean McCann. Ireland (ARS Gold Medal Recipient; world renown author of 27 books on roses, history, soccer and biography.)
