Synopsis

Late Summer Flowers by Marina Christopher, Steven Wooster, Daniel J. Hinkley

While gardeners may be happy enough with their gardens in spring and early summer, few feel so confident about prolonging the display. In Late Summer Flowers Marina Christopher, co-founder of the celebrated Green Farm Nursery, shows how, by choosing plants that have a late flowering season, or offer such bonuses as attractive foliage, seedheads or berries, you can get the best from the garden in late summer and autumn.
