Verey writes that this is a book for gardeners who also are flower arrangers. She gives advice on how to have plenty of flowers and foliage for cutting and still have lots of plants left in the garden. She begins with a chapter on planning gardens--a so-called front garden, a water garden, a sunny and shady border, and what Verey calls an island bed of cool colors and an island bed of hot colors. Verey suggests 40 seasonal flower arrangements and gives a list of 64 essential plants for the flower arranger's garden. Each listing gives information on the plant's hardiness, size, color, sun and soil requirements, and uses. A final chapter offers tips on gardening and flower arranging techniques such as drying flowers, propagation, pruning, mulching, and fertilizing. All 144 pages are in color. George Cohen
