Whether you have a few pots, a dedicated patch or you’re planning to grow flowers in the borders, Cut Flowers includes the practical steps you need to take to ensure natural, garden-style flower arrangements all year round, together with a directory of flowers, bulbs and foliage to grow, and pro advice on creating dreamy designs.

"More than just beautiful, this book is genuinely useful. It is approachable enough to inspire those taking their first steps into growing flowers and in-depth enough to be a useful addition to the workbench of any flower farmer or florist. Cel's approach is considered and considerate, and Cut flowers is sure to become a firm favourite." -- Sarah Diligent * founder of Floribunda Rose Floral Design * "Cel grows her beautiful flowers with art and soul. Her respect for the earth and love of nature, guide everything she does, and her own roots are firmly in the soil with her plants." -- Shane Connolly * floral designer and author * "I have long-admired Cel's work and appreciate her deep commitment to sustainability. This beautiful book covers all the fundamentals of growing cut flowers from planning and growing, to harvest and design." -- Erin Benzakein * founder of Floret Flower Farm * "Cel Robertson simplifies the process for growing cut flowers in temperate zones. To grow and then harvest one's own seasonal flowers brings a kind of nature-positive satisfaction and joy that is in its own realm. In the quest to find the most sustainable cut flower, home-grown wins by a zero-carbon mile." -- Rita Feldmann * director of the Sustainable Floristry Network * "Cel is such a knowledgeable plantswoman and she has shared so much great information in her book. Growing and cutting your own flowers will be a pleasure in her company." -- Gill Hodgson * founder of Flowers from the Farm *
