The Flower Farmer's Year is a unique and entertaining look at how to plant, maintain and keep evolving a productive cut-flower garden, with a foreword by James Alexander-Sinclair.
Whether you want to devote a corner of your garden to a stand of sweet peas and some cosmos, take up flower production for gate sales, or make a livelihood from cut flowers, Georgie Newbery will take you through everything from planning your garden to budgeting and marketing. With the carbon cost of imported cut flowers so high, people are increasingly growing their own or looking toward local suppliers, making backyard flower businesses an increasingly attractive option for producer and consumer alike. With plenty of stories about Georgie's successes and the mistakes she's made along the way, The Flower Farmer's Year is not only an entertaining read, it is also a highly informative manual. With its wonderful photographs and quirky illustrations, it's a book to dream over - before enabling you to make those dreams a reality.
