Select, Plant, Grow, and Harvest Gorgeous Blooms
by Lisa Mason Ziegler
Learn how to grow an abundance of beautiful cut flowers for pleasure or profit. This handbook includes 41 cool-season and 25 warm-season flowers to grow and harvest.
The perfect balance of inspiration and education, The Cut Flower Handbook teaches how Lisa grows and harvests annual cut flowers from seed to bloom while sharing the varieties that have become her tried and true favorites. Learn how the size of your growing area alone determines the success or failure of your cutting garden and when to plant cool-season and warm-season flowers.
Lisa shares her streamlined steps for preparing, locating, and maintaining the cutting garden. Learn why and how she selects the best seed starting method for a specific flower and its favored growing conditions. Lisa also shares her tried and true methods for how she starts seeds – from soil blocking to growing in plug trays to planting seeds directly in the garden!
Over half the book features specific flowers or flower groups, including growing facts, Lisa’s firsthand experiences with them, tips for home gardeners and flower farmers, harvesting and conditioning steps, and lists of Lisa’s favorite varieties.
Lisa’s logical and nature-driven method is the signature hallmark of her super-successful online flower-farming courses, and it’s one that translates equally well to both small urban backyards and large rural flower farms.
