The main characteristics of each selected perennial and how to grow and propagate them.
Optimal growing conditions, soil requirements and the best maintenance regime for each plant.
Each plant's flowering season and what other plants it goes best with.
This book also contains information about which perennials are beneficial to wildlife, which are suitable to use as cut flowers, and the latest in varietal development.
This indispensable book lists the most useful summer perennials. From the familiar campanulas,
delphiniums and hardy geraniums to the more obscure doronicum and centranthus, it shows
exactly how to grow each, and which are the best combinations. - Daily Mail
I was impressed by The Little Book of Popular Perennials ... which lists 100 perennials, all beautifully illustrated, and gives sensible advice about their cultivation. - The Daily Mail
