It will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers, including: The best varieties of cut flowers--an A-Z list of more than one hundred recommended annuals and perennials, spotlighting the cultivars that are grown by professional flower farmers ; How to cut, store, and preserve flowers for long-lasting beauty ; How to dry flowers for crafting or for a dried-flower business ; Flower-arranging basics from a designer's perspective ; Extending the season with woody shrubs and trees ; Marketing options for commercial growers, including sales at farmer's markets, supermarkets, florists, and wholesalers. Sprinkled throughout are profiles of successful flower farmers--from Vermont to California, Texas to Wisconsin--each of them providing a unique perspective proving that growing flowers can be as profitable as it is satisfying"--Publisher description."@en ;
