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.
