by Marjorie Massey

“A garden, patio or window box ablaze with the riotous colours of massed flowers is the aim of many a gardener, and a vast array of annuals, biennials and perennials is available to achieve that purpose.  With traditional species and innumerable improved types it is possible to co-ordinate heights, shapes and colours to create almost any landscaping effect required.
Annuals bring a seasonal rhythm to a garden, growing, flowering and dying within a year; biennials extend this cycle over a couple of years.  Perennials lend a garden continuity and permanence, while still contributing admirably to colour and form, and are easily maintained, requiring less care than annuals.  Amid this rich variety, selection is the first problem.
For gardeners from the hot tropics to the coldest areas of Australia, Annuals and Perennials presents a cornucopia of garden favourites, rare plants and new hybrids from which to choose, and takes the reader step-by-step through planning, establishing and maintaining a garden around these versatile and beautiful plants”
