I just can’t get over how valuable this book is. In this episode I share my biggest take-aways from this book that I know is going to become a ragged favorite. It’s full of detailed information on how to grow flowers whether your just growing for landscape or love of flowers or if you want to grow for market. Her tips and techniques will help your garden look it’s loveliest!

I love this picture of her in the peonies by far one of my most favorite of flowers although they sure are difficult to get going here!

And of course she has great advice for how to combat pests without using toxic chemicals!

Not only does she have actual recipes for creating arrangements but she has awesome tips for getting blooms to last in a vase! Something I always struggle with!

Look at this gorgeous Vincent Van Gogh arrangement! IMG_0987

So my first year my personal challenge was to grow 750 sunflowers and that seemed huge! This year I’ve decided this year my personal challenge is going to be to grow 750 sunflowers a week from April 22nd through July and also some rudbeckia! I’m sure I’m gonna just use the inexpensive bird seed that I get at the store and if I can grow enough not to have to buy them next year I’ll be in good shape! And if I can have some to paint, pictures etc because I love sunflowers!

    I purchased a cottage in WA and it has a very mature yard full of flowers many families have planted over 80+ years . An old pear tree, tons of roses, lilacs, hydrangea etc… It’s all a beautiful mess but I really want to plan out a beautiful flower garden I can cut from. I had no idea where to start and I believe this book will be a great help. I would have never thought to perform a soil test, thanks for the great tip! :)

    Also glad you said she spoke about Dahlias! I’m curious to see what I am doing wrong. I have planted them over 3 years ago and I haven’t had a bloom yet!
    I am interested in hearing about the weed barrier also. Have you ever used newspaper?
    All the best with your Sunflowers this year! 750 a week is an amazing goal to set! I hope you do get around to doing the school garden this year, I am sure everyone would just love it. :)
