Books I Recommend

Some of you may already know this, but I have my doctorate degree — and NOT in anything flower or business related. I love to read. I love to learn. Here are some links to my favorite resources. As I’ve said before, I do get a tiny commission if you order them through this link.

This book is absolutely where you need to start. Whether you’re doing a hobby backyard cut flower garden and want a fresh vase every week, or want a full scale commercial flower farm, this is what you need. I have read it about a dozen times and constantly look things up again.

This book is a great way to learn which flowers catch your eye and which ones you want to try growing. I love it breaks everything up by season, and the photos taken by Erin’s husband are inspirational to say the least.

Erin’s second book ‘A Year in Flowers’ walks you through basic design principles. This is where I get so many ideas of using foliage and various greens found around my farm. Raspberries?! Boxwood?! Lets put those landscape bushes to work!
