Perennials is a book I got from National Home Gardening Club. I do not remember, how much it was, or it could have been free??? $20.00 is a guess.
I love the information in this book.
I keep forgetting, what plants come back, perennials or is it annuals? It is perennials. But without this book, I will be asking someone this question at the store, next year.
This book tells you how to keep your plants healthy.
It tells you what perennials are best for your home.
A few ways it does this, is it tells you what perennials is for a warm climates, and the ones for cold climates.
Your plants will do a lot better in certain soils. It tells you some plants for heavy clay soil, and then some for sandy soil.
It also depends on how much water the plants will get. Some like dry and some like wet. Is your perennials going in the sun or in the shade?
This book also, tells you a lot about landscaping.
Mix borders, island beds, entryway plantings, and corner plantings.
You can find out what plants attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
Perennials tells you how to grow your own flowers from seeds.
And Finally it has 70 perennials, from A to Z.
For each one it tells, what they look like, shows a picture, has a growing guide, uses for the pant, and what kind or family it is from.
This book is just full of information for gardeners or someone who loves flowers or landscaping.
