In 2008 the state of New York imposed new regulations on all government-owned properties – no longer would pesticide usage be allowed.  Peter Kukielski, the rosarian-curator of the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden, had to find new ways to keep more than 650 rose varieties pest free.

Pat Leuchtman interviewed Peter for the Spring 2015 issue of PITH + VIGOR to find out how he did it and shares his recommendations for the best easy-care sustainable roses for your garden. How to grow sustainable modern roses (easy-care) by Pat Leuctman with Peter Kukielski
