MOST gardeners know the despair of finding spring's pride and joy fade, once the reality of late summer's harshness bites.

Here is a comrpehensive handbook with the best-flowering late flowering perennials, and a few annual and biennials thrown in.

There's detailed discussion on suitable flower families, such as daisies, and some tricks to persuade early flowering species to delay their show - or better still to repeat it in late summer or early autumn.

A worthwhile reference book.
