The Time-Life Book of Annuals

176 pages; Softcover

For the gardener who wants to indulge in a different riot of color each year, Annuals is bursting with practical information about which flowers to choose, and when and how to plant them. This book explains which annuals are easiest to grow, which grow best in the shade, how to use a cold frame, and which annuals grow best in your geographic area. In addition, the book discusses indoor starts, transplanting and selecting the right terrain, proper spacing, sun and water requirements and planting for glorious color contrasts. Also, some 250 species of lovely flowers--including such favorites as geraniums, sweet peas, marigolds, periwinkles, chrysanthemums, African daisies, zinnias, and sweet Williams--are thoroughly described in the book's encyclopedia section. Full of color, facts, how-to-do-it tips, and practical advice for the hundreds of problems a gardener may encounter, Annuals is a comprehensive reference volume of extraordinary depth and detail.
