The author is considered to be the world’s best-selling gardening author. Filled with facts on everything from choosing the right type of flower to cultivate, to increasing stock, to learning the ins-and-outs of flower care, to the special growing details that only an “expert book” can provide, it’s truly the only flower guide you’ll ever need. With an incredible array of available flowers shown, and complete A to Z dictionaries of annuals and biennials, border perennials, rockery perennials, bulbs, and hobby plants, there is everything you need to select the perfect flowers. Colour photos of every one, plus all the varieties of each–with choice of site, climate, propagation techniques, and more–make sure everything goes smoothly. But because things occasionally do go wrong even in the most well-tended gardens, a special section on plant troubles contains a full “rogues’ gallery” of potential problems–and ways to nip them in the bud.
