The Flower Expert by D. G. Hessayon (1999)


Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition. Please see our guide to book conditions for more details. Price tags on front. No other flaws. 

Revised and updated, twice the size--and with over two and a half million copies sold! He's the world's best-selling gardening author and this is now the definitive manual on flower gardening. As big as The Houseplant Expert, the new, greatly expanded, and amazingly comprehensive Millennium Edition is packed with every detail, every secret, and every trick Hessayon has uncovered through years of experience. Filled with facts on everything from choosing the right type of flower to cultivate, to increasing stock, to learning the ins-and-outs of flower care, to the special growing details that only an "expert book" can provide, it's truly the only flower guide you'll ever need. With an incredible array of available flowers shown, and complete A to Z dictionaries of annuals and biennials, border perennials, rockery perennials, bulbs, and hobby plants, there is everything you need to select the perfect flowers. Color photos of every one, plus all the varieties of each--with choice of site, climate, propagation techniques, and more--make sure everything goes smoothly. But because things occasio nally do go wrong even in the most well-tended gardens, a special section on plant troubles contains a full "rogues' gallery" of potential problems--and ways to nip them in the bud. 256 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9 1/2.
