Annuals for Every Garden, Issue 174
Hundreds of spectacular annuals, at-a glance growing information by the best experts in the field, inspired plant combinations, and more than 80 dazzling photos: how could any gardener do without this guide? It covers almost every type of annual in an encyclopedic directory, including some less well-known varieties from the Southwestern United States and Mexico: there are plants for drying; edible ones from Asia and Africa to enhance the herb garden and kitchen table; evening bloomers and morning glories; annuals to pick for a perfect bouquet and others that create shade; tropicals and tender plants; and seaside annuals. Every one will blossom beautifully with the advice on propagation and instructions for pinching, disbudding, and deadheading. Or try the tips on caring for and handling fresh cut annuals. Two complete garden plans showcase the infinite array, color, and creative potential of these plants, and reveal why they are called "the gardener's palette."
