From the cover: With more than 180,000 copies sold since its original publication, The Well-Tended Perennial Garden has proven to be one of the most useful tools a gardener can have. Now, in this expanded edition, theres even more to learn from and enjoy. This is the first, and still the most thorough, book to detail essential practices of perennial care such as deadheading, pinching, cutting back, thinning, disbudding, and dead leafing, all of which are thoroughly explained and illustrated.
More than 200 new colour photographs have been added to this revised edition, showing perennials in various border situations and providing images for each of the entries in the A-to-Z encyclopaedia of important perennial species. In addition, there is a new 32-page journal section, in which you can enter details, notes, and observations about the requirements and performance of perennials in your own garden.
