Perennial gardening can be easy, fun and rewarding, especially when you have this beautifully illustrated guide at your fingertips. With detailed accounts of 93 different perennials, along with information on 519 recommended varieties and cultivars perfect for Northern California gardens, this book takes the guesswork out of perennial gardening. The authors share their common sense and practical advice to help you transform any patch of ground--wet or dry, sunny or shady, coastal or hot interior valley--into a spectacular garden you can enjoy year after year: * Flower and foliage colors * Height and spread ranges * Blooming periods * How and when to start your plants * Planting strategies * Light, water and nutrient needs * Choosing the best perennials for different growing conditions * Over 500 color photographs.
At age 90, Bob is a retired retail nurseryman. Up until 1998 he owned and operated Tanem's Garden Centers in Belvedere and San Rafael/ Santa Venetia. He bought Santa Venetia Nursery in 1961 on a whim and with no experience of the nursery business, except the teachings and love for Gardening that his grandmother and grandfather instilled in him.
