The Cut Flower Garden by Erin BenzakeinThis gorgeous book was the perfect resource at the perfect time.
Ive long wanted a cut flower garden, and have slowly implemented more and more plants. This book was everything I needed to know to fill in the gaps in my knowledge. Everything from how to keep the massive plants upright to keeping specific flowers alive longer in vases to the best strains or most vibrant colors. And not only flowers, there were sections on greenery and even appropriate vegetables.
The photos were beautiful, and since Im in the same general area as the author, every timing tip was spot on. I got this from the library but will definitely be purchasing a copy for continuing reference.

From fragrant sweet peas in the spring to magnificent dinner plate dahlias in the fall and countless varieties in between, we harvest only the best of what is blooming each day. Research is at the heart of our operation, and we conduct extensive trials to find the very best cut flower varieties, coveted for their scent, stem length, and ephemeral qualities. We source these hard to find varieties from the best seed houses in the world and make them available to the home gardener. Our shop features our very favorite cut flower seeds, as well as dahlia tubers, spring-flowering bulbs, tools, supplies, and gifts. No cutting garden is complete without at least one row of fragrant, nostalgic sweet peas. As a small family farm and business, Floret offers limited quantities of our specialty seeds, bulbs and garden products at specific times of the year.
