Recipe for a garden that comes back.

Karen Kees' magnificent flower garden pictured on page 79 consists of annuals, perennials, and bulbs that--with proper care--provide grand and steady show year after year. Here we list the principal ones, with tips on planting and maintenance. Both spring and fall are listed as planting times for many plants. In mild-winter areas, fall is the best planning time. Where winters are cold, start in spring.

With the annuals, we give advice on how to encourage self-sowing. To increase your perennials, follow the suggestions for promoting self-sowing; otherwise, follow instructions on maintaining these repeat bloomers. All will bloom longer if spent flowers are removed.

Except for daylilies and daffodils, the bulbs listed are for mildwinter areas only.
