    DescriptionWhile 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.
