Flowers for You: Blooms for Every Month

Flowers for You: Blooms for Every Month

by Anita Holmes, Virginia Wright-Frierson

Editorial Reviews

Chris Sherman
Holmes provides novice gardeners with guidelines and helpful hints necessary for the successful growing of 12 common flowering plants--among them, Christmas cactus, kalanchoe, war begonia, geranium, shrimp plant, chrysanthemum, and spathiphyllum. Her objective is to have colorful blossoms throughout the year, so she's selected her plants with attention to hardiness and the blossoming cycle. Each double-page spread is beautifully illustrated with carefully rendered watercolors that show a mature plant in an appropriate container as well as smaller drawings depicting gardening techniques. Charts are clearly labeled, and the instructions for plant care and propagation are concise and easy to follow. A detailed glossary is appended.
