From soil enrichment to creating floral arrangements, The Land Gardeners explores all aspects of creating a productive cut flower garden.
When Bridget Elworthy and Henrietta Courtauld established their company The Land Gardeners, specializing in cut flowers, they revived the tradition of working with the earth to produce abundant seasonal flowers for use in decor, design and events. However, as beautiful and idyllic as their designs are, soil health and productivity are their main concerns. Starting with their philosophy and origins as gardeners, The Land Gardeners provides vital information on everything you need to create your own cut flower garden, from the tools you need and how to support plant and soil health to which plants bloom in which seasons and advice on collecting, preparing and arranging your flowers. In this beautiful volume, the authors provide a blueprint for growing flowers in all four seasons.
As beautiful as it is informative, and now available in an affordable compact edition, this book explores the joy of picking cut flowers and the importance of surrounding ourselves with vital, healthy gardens.
