From Library Journal:

In this extremely beautiful and practical book, Raven, a British "flower arranger to the rich and famous," presents gorgeous color photos of her own cutting garden in Sussex. Personal, clear, well organized, and direct in her writing style, she begins with tips for laying out a cutting garden to provide flowers throughout the year and goes on to discuss cultivation, cutting, conditioning, and basic arranging principles. She then suggests truly stunning flower arrangements for each season, indicating instructions, equipment, plants, and methods for each. The final section is a catalog of the author's favorite cutting flowers and foliage arranged by season and color, including illustrations to scale and conditioning and cultivation requirements. This book, which provides a wealth of information and inspiration, is unlike any other the reviewer has seen. While the flower selections are suitable to northern zones, the principles can be adapted by gardeners in all climates. Highly recommended.?Carol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg
