Overview

This is the fourth of Graham Rice's books which Timber Press has published in the United States; like the others, it is a lively presentation of inspirational planting ideas and solid practical information.

After a period of comparative neglect by sophisticated gardeners, annuals are once again being widely used for garden color. In this lavishly illustrated book, Rice presents his choice of the best traditional varieties of annuals and introduces us to new varieties as well as less-known plants. He suggests detailed color combinations and planting schemes that prove annuals are the perfect complement to the old favorites of the garden. Along with inspirational ideas, Rice provides the reader with a wealth of practical lips regarding the planting and care of annuals. Advice on how to make annuals work well together in a variety of settings rounds out the book, which any gardener will find enormously helpful.

Graham Rice is one of the best garden writers in the world, with lively & funny text well-grounded in his Royal Botanic Gardens training. Annual flowers are greatly underappreciated and often badly used, but Rice makes you see them in a whole new light. If you are a gardener of any worth, or just a beginner, this book is a must.
