In the same format as the very successful The Vegetable Gardener's Bible, this new primer is both painstakingly thorough and stunningly photographed. It covers every facet of growing perennials, annuals, bulbs, wildflowers, small trees, vines, and shrubs for season-long color and beauty.
It is organized in three sections, and the first focuses on the basics -- choosing the right varieties for your zone and type of garden, and planning and planting for maximum impact.
The second section presents plans for 25 distinctively themed gardens. And finally, a photographic encyclopedia of more than 400 species includes detailed descriptions of each plant -- garden uses, susceptibility to pests and diseases, propagation methods, and more.
The Flower Gardener's Bible is illustrated throughout with more than 500 full-color photographs that are joyously informal, and charming in their simplicity Dozens of charts group plants by bloom time, height, color, affinity to shade, specific soil and sun needs, appeal to birds and butterflies, and more. The Flower Gardener's Bible takes every reader -- at any level of interest and expertise -- and offers the one thing guaranteed to increase his or her pleasure in flower gardening -- knowledge. Paperback, 384 pages.
