Here is a complete listing of all of Ralph Moore's writings available on this web site. Mr. Ralph Moore, September 1998

A comment about Ralph by his friend, Kim Rupert of California:

"He will surprise you, as he does many, and did me. This is the most humble, honest and open man I've ever met. He is genuinely interested in what you think about the roses you are observing. He is not one to feel his experience and knowledge place him above any other rose lover. He "sees" the rose through your eyes, learning what he can from you, and making you feel as though you've just shared a secret he hadn't known. He's just as free with his observations and knowledge in return. He answers all questions fully, and without hesitation. Nothing is proprietary with him. Knowledge is fun, and must be shared with all who have an ear to listen. It is a sin there is no one to carry on his "dynasty", but he's sown his seeds of knowledge everywhere, and many have fallen on fertile ground. He is a treasure, and one you find it is easy to love."
