Synopses & Reviews
From humble marigolds to perfumed exotics like heliotrope, trace sunny summer through a colorful progression of flowers in gardens large and small. Cultivate every beautiful plant and blossom you see here, with the tips on seed sowing, planting out, dead-heading, color scheming, and seed collecting. The season begins with the soft tints of early summer pansies and forget-me-nots, azure love-in-a-mist, and indigo larkspur. Midsummer's warm palette includes honey-scented petunias, and as the season fades, rich purples and crimson tints appear, along with faded blossoms, ripe with the seeds of promise for next summer.
