"The book proposes a holistic approach to flower gardening, with a refreshing difference: instead of concentrating primarily on color, it brings flower shape to the fore, which results in a more aesthetically pleasing result. The featured plants include both perennials and annuals, and have been chosen for their ease of care, attractiveness to pollinators, and environmental friendliness. Emphasis is also placed on seasonal succession, the long-term evolution of the flower bed, and organic gardening practices. In short, the book provides a complete road map to a successful, satisfying flower gardening"-- Provided by publisher.
