Grow and Gather: A gardener’s guide to a year of cut flowers
You don't need a flower field in the countryside to grow cut flowers, arrange beautiful floral displays or connect with nature. A simple patch of earth is plenty. In Grow and Gather, you'll follow the annual cycle of growing cut flowers, from sowing in spring to seed-collecting in autumn. Simple projects show you how to plant and nurture various flowers, as well as demonstrating the importance of texture, color and shape when arranging them. Together with these practical projects, tips and hints, flower field gardener and clinical psychologist Grace Alexander guides you in the art of meaningful, engaged and intentional gardening – through mindful growing, you can transform your wellbeing and find a greater connection to your garden and yourself.
