Beautiful photography, interesting interviews, and innovative floral design make this book a pleasurable read for flower growers and flower lovers.

The 50-Mile Bouquet celebrates the local flower movement with stories and photographs of sustainable flower farms, florists, and designers. Pegged as "The Organic Growing, Gathering, and Design Guide," this book appeals to both professionals and consumers. It is brimming with inspiring stories of people who are making a livelihood with small-scale, local flowers. 

The book opens with profiles of a dozen small-scale, sustainable flower farms, primarily on the West Coast. From there it moves on to the retail end of the flower business, with stories about eco-design shops, flower design classes, bridal businesses. A chapter on the DIY flower phenomenon has a wealth of tips for handling and creating with flowers. And the fourth chapter is about weddings and other events that use sustainable flowers.
A beautifully illustrated book, The 50-Mile Bouquet would be an appropriate and encouraging gift for any flower lover.
