Hardy and Half Hardy Annuals - With Chapters on Sowing the Seeds, Staking and Varieties (Paperback)
"Hardy and Half Hardy Annuals" is a complete guide to annual plants designed for the gardener or botanist. Annual plants are plants that complete their life cycle within one year before dying. This vintage book concentrates on varieties of annual plants that are 'hardy' or 'half-hardy', referring to their ability to resist and survive low temperatures. This book is highly recommended for green-fingered readers with a practical interest in growing annual plants in their garden or on a smallholding. Contents include: "Soil", "Sowing the Seeds", "Staking", "Acroclinium", "Adonis", "Alonsoa", "Alyssum Maritmum", "Anagallis", "Antirrhinum", "Angemone", "Asperula Azurea Setosa", "Bartonia Aurea", "Brachycoma Iberidifolia", "Browallia Elata", "Cacalia (Emilla) Coccinea", "Varieties", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
