Living with Flowersby David Rockefeller, David Rockefeller, Joseph Mehling (Photographer), Thomas Dale Cowan
J. Barry Ferguson is a renowned florist, designer, lecturer, and botanist with a half century of experience with flowers. To him, flowers are an essential part of life-as necessary as a morning cup of coffee or a glass of orange juice. In this revised and updated version of Living with Flowers, Ferguson shares his passion for flowers and encourages readers to incorporate plants and flowers into their everyday lives-throughout the seasons of the year, in every room of the house, in the city and in the country.
Throughout this beautifully-illustrated book, Ferguson's passion for flowers shines through, as he shares his experiences and knowledge. Ferguson reveals his philosophy and techniques for creating gorgeous and unique arrangements for every occasion, whether it be a wedding, a holiday, or a simple meal. In addition, he provides practical, expert tips, such as the best techniques for cutting flowers, methods to keep cut flowers fresher longer, how to force bulbs, and even how to bring fading flowers back to life by what Ferguson calls the "Lazarus effect."
Both inspirational and practical, Living with Flowers is an essential part of any gardener or flower lover's library. And for those just beginning to make flowers a part of their lives, this volume is the perfect introduction.
