The Bountiful Flower Garden: Growing and Sharing Cut Flowers in the South
Southern gardeners often despair that books written in other parts of the country don't fit our plants and growing conditions. However, we're fortunate to have authors like William C. Welch and Neal G. Odenwald to show the way with practical wisdom and firsthand experience gardening in our sultry zones. Their new book, The Bountiful Flower Garden: Growing and Sharing Cut Flowers in the South (Taylor Publishing Company, 2000; $33), is a treasure chest of information on growing and using cut flowers. The authors give details on a multitude of flowering and foliage plants and discuss recent trends in flower gardening as well as new concepts in garden design. They have added to this over 300 full-color photos, a chapter on marketing cut flowers, and a list of plant and seed sources to create a "must have" book for southern flower gardeners.
