With irrepressible enthusiasm and humor, the Arnoskys grow and write about cut flowers at their farm in the Hill Country of Texas. “Never a dull moment” is their motto as they regale readers with tales of drought, floods, hail, and tornadoes. Nothing stops them; they keep growing more and more flowers every year, with amazing success, and they generously share their hard-won knowledge in their regular column in Growing for Market magazine.
This collection of articles will introduce readers to a wide range of beautiful cut flowers that anyone can grow by following the expert advice herein. The Arnoskys give detailed information about all aspects of their business, including choosing varieties, starting seeds, harvesting, making bouquets, and marketing. The how-to aspects of their writing blend seamlessly with funny anecdotes about life on the farm. Aspiring and veteran growers alike will enjoy Local Color.
