Description

Prepare the ground, sow seed, encourage, harvest, and fill your home with vases of beautiful blooms, all the year round.

Growing flowers not only brings colour and life to the garden, it also gives you an abundance of floral material to use at home. This book shows you how to nurture and arrange your own blooms so you have garden-gathered flowers for the vase in every season, all without the carbon footprint of many shop-bought flowers. 

The book includes four chapters – Learn, Plan, Grow and Care – and covers everything you need to understand Cut Flowers, plan your plot, grow the right plants and nurture them so they thrive from season to season.
 
Whether you have a few pots, a dedicated patch or you're planning to grow flowers in the borders, Cut Flowers includes the practical steps you need to take to ensure natural, garden-style flower arrangements all year round, together with a directory of flowers, bulbs and foliage to grow, and pro advice on creating dreamy designs.

It's time to ditch the supermarket flowers and keep in touch with the seasons inside and out!
