"" I 'HIS little work will, no doubt, be warmly
welcomed by our Members, for it not only
gives the life history of the different fungoid and
insect pests which attack the Rose, but also
instructions as to how they may be kept in
check, and destroyed.
The excellent illustrations by Miss BEARD will
also help them to identify nearly all the enemies
with which their Roses may be at any time attacked.
Beginners, and those having little knowledge of
Rose-growing, will in the first instance do well to
consult the Introduction, in which an endeavour
has been made to show how comparatively easy it
is to keep in subjection the three most common
enemies the Rose grower has to contend with.« less
