For anyone who loves perennials and grows them, or has thought of growing them in their garden, this straightforward book is definitely for you. Author Maureen Little has put together an extremely easy-to-use, compact reference book covering all aspects of growing and caring for a wide range of these popular plants.
Although almost impossible to include every type of perennial, this is a well thought out collection with excellent photography that makes each plant instantly recognisable. Maureen, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society, is a gardener, plantswoman and beekeeper who has written widely on gardening and plants. In this easily portable volume, she has clearly laid out each alphabetical entry which contains practical and concise advice on the best growing conditions, soil requirements, flowering seasons, propagation and maintenance regime for each plant.
With additional information on the best plants to use for cut flowers and which perennials are beneficial to wildlife this really is a handy little book to have around.
