This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This is a lovely book, with beautiful pictures. I love that it is organized by season, with tips and tricks for planting, finding, caring for, and cutting. I am a very basic gardener, with little natural artistry, and this was VERY informative. I wish I'd had this book when I had a yard (we're in a condo now), but this is a book I can share with friends and we can all benefit. ( )

A beautiful book, with inspirational photos. I like that the book is organized by seasons and offers suggestions for easy to find flowers, but then also includes the authors favorite varieties of each. There are comprehensive "what you need" lists that make it easy to get started. My one small complaint is that the font is very tiny, for my aging eyes, in the descriptions of the plants. ( )

I just received this book today and started reading it immediately.
It is exactly what I wanted in a book about cutting flowers from my garden. The photos are beautiful and informative. I really appreciated the author's personal recommendations. I'm often confused when buying seeds as to which variety is best in my growing conditions and she clears this up for me.
The way to best cut and preserve flowers after cutting was information that I have searched for and not found in the other books on gardening that I own.
The "Basics" section helped me with ideas as to how to organize the flower garden and when to do the plantings.
Overall I thought this book was excellent and provides a much needed source of information that is difficult to get and that I have never seen compiled in this organized way.
The photos are lovely and tell me what I want to know/see.
The only thing I would have liked was for the tools to be labeled as I was not certain as to which names fit with which tools. I know I can find this information elsewhere but it would have been helpful to have the photos labeled accordingly. ( )
