    DescriptionWhile gardeners may be happy enough with their gardens in spring and early summer, few feel so confident about prolonging the display. Thankfully, "Late Summer Flowers" shows how to extend the blooming season. By choosing plants that have a late flowering season, or offer such bonuses as attractive foliage, seedheads, or berries, it is possible to get the best from the garden in late summer and autumn. The book advises on companion planting and planting for color and texture, and includes detailed discussion of how to choose plantings for sun and shade, dry soil and damp, and for problem conditions such as heavy clay or light sand.

    Review quote
    The new reference for extended-season gardening. -- John Bagnasco Garden Compass 20060901 Christopher explores a great many plants besides the usual mums and asters. ... This book opens our eyes to the possibilities of a bounteous garden all the way to Thanksgiving. -- Valerie Easton Seattle Times 20061001 A gift of possibilities. Not just a catalog of recommendations, the book also illustrates methods of combining the plants to make the most of the blossoms that linger and those most fleeting. -- Jean Starr Munster (IN) Times 20060810
