An American gardener without any prior knowledge can find more useful guides for beginning to grow flowers. My advice is to buy a book written by an author with experience growing flowers under conditions similar to where you garden. Once you find such a regional book covering the basics, "The Cut Flower Patch" can be purchased as a lovely, stylish supplement to provide inspiration and ideas.

Then I became more aware of the terrible price of the commercial cut-flower industry - namely huge amounts of fossil fuels consumed in shipping, and terrible growing practices often involving chemicals being used on the flower farms that are banned for use in America or Europe. The beautiful bouquets you can't help but sniff can be a literal armful of toxins you wouldn't want anywhere in your home - never mind on your table next to your food. So I gave up my flower bouquets except the occasional roses from my rose bush.
Enter The Cut Flower Patch: Grow your own cut flowers all year round by Louise Curley, presenting us with the middle ground we need between nothing and awful. A way to grow our own flowers, enjoy the seasonal ebbs and flows of what our garden provides. A way to bring color and life into our homes without supporting a cruel industry. And, tips for growing the plants we'll use in our flower arrangements with earth-friendly and organic principles. By taking matters into our own hands - and yards. Brilliant!
