This is one of the best gardening books I have come across. Contains a wide range of perennials with complete care instuctions, gorgeous photos and has been an essential reference book. My copy's pages are well muddied, dogeared, and scribbled upon. A must for any flower gardener.
by Pete Prown, Grene Scene,
"I bought [this book] as soon as it came out and have found it invaluable. It is well written and contains sound information about the cultural requirements of the plants, maintenance and how to prepare the beds."
by Library Journal,
"This excellent resource offers extensive in-depth instructions on pruning, dividing, deadheading, pinching, and other maintenance techniques for specific perennials."
by The Holmes Runner 2001,
"This is not just another pretty picture book on perennial flowers, although the author?s photos are superb. What you will find is a twofer, i.e., a comprehensive guide to growing perennials and a really good encyclopedia on perennials. And? It is truly a bargain considering how much good information is packed into one book."
