Purchased as a gift for master gardener friend. Suggested reading from Better Homes and Gardens magazine April 2012 issue. Beautiful photography, comfortably sized book. Upon purusing book found it was informative regarding organic flower business, but wished for more reading about the flowers specifically.
The 50 Mile Bouquet was a joy to read and informative as well. This book introduces the locavore movement as it pertains to the cut flower market. Tips on flower arrangement are included as well. Inspiring!
