Description - Grow Your Own Cut Flowers by Sarah Raven

Grow Your Own CUT FLOWERS distils everything Sarah Raven has learnt in five years of testing and cultivating the best possible cut flowers for growing at home. If you want to grow your own cut flowers, there could be no better guide in the world. The book ties-in with an eight-part five-minute mini-series on Gardeners World in spring 2002. Grow Your Own CUT FLOWERS is for the flower arranger who wants to grow their own flowers, but has never gardened before, and for the gardener who knows how to grow their own flowers, but wants ideas to fill a house with their harvest. It demystifies the world of floristry, giving away all the insiders' tips on sowing seed, conditioning flowers and making simple, but stylish arrangements a tied bunch, a large vase, a table centre and more elaborate party flowers. No alarming terms, complex procedures or slabs of wordy text here Grow Your Own Cut Flowers is written more like a cookery book with recipes than a traditional gardening book. Illustrated with over 250 striking colour photographs by Jonathan Buckley, Grow Your Own Cut Flowers is stylish and inspirational as well as practical and accessible. THE AUTHOR WILL UNDERTAKE TO AMERICANIZE THE TEXT FOR ANY CO-EDITIONS.
