Beautiful and readable though it is, this book is also aiming to equip the reader to make their own decisions about planting annuals. To that end, Graham goes systematically through the alphabet, pointing out particular opportunities to experiment as well as warning of possible pitfalls. The most satisfying course, he suggests, is to ignore fashion and concentrate instead on trying to discover your own personal taste in an ongoing process, whatever your level of expertise.
To give this development some practical grounding, a cogent advice section, glossary, contact details for suppliers, further reading and index are accompanied by a specially designated Web site. This last not only contains additional information, but also the promise that supply details given in the book will be updated. A final, convincing example of Graham's genuine desire to enhance the reader's gardening experience. --Fiona Murphy --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
