"A complete book about temporal plants that grow in this region. There are more than 100 photos, but the information is the primary reason to get this tome." --The Washington Post

"True to form, Armitage's humor accompanies his sage advice throughout the text. I predict that this book will become holy writ on the subject of annuals. And I confess that when it comes to a book written by Allan Armitage, I buy it unhesitatingly for the authority associated with the name and then find out all about the subject within." --Horticulture

"I have yet to see the perfect guide to annuals and tender perennials, but this new compendium by esteemed plantman Allan M. Armitage comes close." --Fine Gardening
