The Cutting Garden
Growing and Arranging Garden Flowers
Sarah Raven, flower arranger to the rich and famous, shows how to fill the home with the colour, scent, and style of garden-grown flowers. The Cutting Garden combines down-to-earth advice with innovative ideas for an abundance of floral arrangements for informal, elegant or romantic settings.

With practical but inspirational ideas, Raven outlines planning, planting, and maintaining well-stocked cutting gardens of various sizes. Plants are organized by season, colour, and size; instructions on growing, picking, and conditioning are included. Step-by-step instructions and brilliant photos demonstrate how to achieve professional effects with simple bunches, romantic globes, swags, and medallions. This book provides gardening and flower enthusiasts with a cornucopia of ideas for adding a dash of home-grown colour to their interior decoration.

Sarah Raven is the daughter of distinguished gardeners. She produces the “Gardening Month” column for Homes and Gardens and writes regularly about gardening and flower arranging for other publications.

...I really like this book for its photographs, design, how to and very applicable to those outside the UK.
