Ed Keck, Editor of the Miami Valley Rose Society in Dayton, Ohio
Your wonderful book came in the mail last Friday. I'm very pleased with what I've read and must confess that conditions here in Ohio are not that much different with respect to the temperatures zones and many of the practices you recommend. The layout/design and quality of the writing is top-notch. Thank you for being such inspirational rosarians.

Henry Homeyer, Author & Garden Writer
Hi Mike and Angelina, Great seeing you in Providence. As I told you, doing an article on your book has been on my list for a year, and now it is happening. Congrats on a book well done. Now that I have taken the time to read it (I'm 75% done with it), I have to say it is the best I have come across on roses. Very practical, easy to read, lots of good detail. Cheers, Henry

Susan Littlefield, National Gardening Association (
“So much of the information published on selecting and growing roses seems to be for those in climates more benign than ours. That's why I was glad to see the new book Roses for New England by Mike and Angelina Chute. The authors… have years of experience growing roses in our region. Their book contains regionally appropriate information …Best of all is a section on sustainable roses that lists over 150 varieties…”

Barbara Gee: author of The Rhode Island Gardener’s Companion (
“I’ve always been terrified of roses! Thanks to your book that’s no longer the case."

Linda Shamoon: Past President Rhode Island Rose Society (
“Congratulations, Mike and Angie! The book looks beautiful and incredibly informative, the crucial book on rose growing for New Englanders.”

Great Journal! Just what I was looking for. Love the To-Do Lists and tips. Photos are
gorgeous. Plan to purchase as gifts for my gardening friends.
Congratulations on you 2nd book.

Mary Margaret King, Portland, Maine
What a wonderful journal – not just blank pages, but chock full of great rose growing
information. I especially liked your lists of fragrant roses and shade tolerant varieties.
Thank you.
