There’s nothing quite as rewarding as cutting flowers for your home, and this fresh take on the subject, full of tips and advice, shows that a cut flower patch is the most economical and eco-friendly way to enjoy cut flowers today. Starting in spring with seeds, bulbs, perennials and even shrubs, Louise shows you how to create the most diverse displays, from subtle bunches to armfuls of blossom.
