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
