Texan named Field

I haven't heard of him for years, but there is a Texan whose name is Field who likes the Cornell mixture for growing roses. Do any of you happen to know his name?

The subject came up at our church, and I know he used to live here in Tulsa. He is a huge advocate of using more homemade mixtures than purchased pesticides. I just do not remember his last name.

He has a good reputation, and I think he has written extensively, so I feel that it is appropriate to ask on this Forum.

Field Roebuck, author of the book Foolproof Guide to Growing Roses. He posts periodically and his GW hame is "Field". He also has a web page, try google.

RE: Texan named Field

Thank you so much, Diane. I just could not remember that name, and it had bothered me.


RE: Texan named Field

Hey, Sammy. How've you been?

I'm retired and pretty much just a lurker nowadays. But I still grow roses sans pesticides.

Go look for my book. The original (still available in some places) was indeed titled "Foolproof Guide to Roses," but there is now a new, enlarged version out, and the publisher changed the title to "Complete Roses -- a Foolproof Grower's Guide."
