Bedding Plants (Collins Practical Gardener)

 
9780007164066: Bedding Plants (Collins Practical Gardener)

This new title in the highly successful Collins Practical Gardener series tackles the fine art of cultivating flower beds – from seeds and plugs to glorious carpets of colour and scent!

The book begins with a potted history of the subject of bedding plants. The reader is then guided through all stages of planning, planting and care – how to go about designing a bedding arrangement, whether to buy in plants or propagate yourself, and how to keep your bed looking its best throughout the season. A special section shows how to care for tender perennials so that they last for several years.

The main section of the book is a comprehensive directory of every conceivable bedding plant available. Each entry includes a visual chart listing the best varieties and indicating when to plant, length of flowering season, spread, height, moisture requirements and hardiness. In addition, quick-access care charts provide a hit list of care requirements and problems to look out for.

Contents include:

• Introduction and History of Bedding Plants
• Assessing Your Garden
• Design – planting combinations
• Buying or Growing
• Growing Bedding Plants from Seed
• Growing Bedding Plants from Plugs and Seedlings
• Planting & Aftercare
• Perennial Bedding Plants – propagation and care
• A–Z of Bedding Plants
• Troubleshooting
• Pests & Diseases
