This remarkable reference begins with a five-page guide containing pictures of annuals, in alphabetical order by common name. This is an excellent way to verify just what flower you have in mind.Next came suggestions on planning annual gardens with advice on frost-free dates and sunlight requirements for various annuals.Planting advice and "starting from seed" suggestions lead to chapters on care, and pest control.The first fifty pages alone would be very helpful to most gardeners, but the next 200 or more pages cover each plant in depth, with specific suggestions and LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL COLOR PHOTOS!Just when you think this book couldn't get any better, it finishes with a detailed index and glossary, AND a useful chart section identifying annuals by qualities such as COLOR, HEIGHT, HARDINESS, LIGHT REQUIREMENTS, and SOIL CONDITIONS. This is an extremely user-friendly help for planning your annual gardens.
Excellent book if you are a gardener in Ohio. I recommend.
Interesting & helpful book.
