I bought this book because I would like to grow flowers for profit and other books I had looked at were about growing for a private cutting patch. The book is ideal for those in my position and I really was not disappointed. It is logical, comprehensive and honest, indeed surprisingly so. The author seems to genuinely hope others might choose to become flower farmers and shares truly useful practical tips. It is a book to read with a notebook next to you.

I am not a Flower Farmer nor am likely to become one but this book is simply a joy to read. Georgie inspires even the amateur to convert a small patch of earth. The photos are wonderful, the writing is inspirational and I'm already planning my small garden to produce cut flowers for next year.

It's refreshing to find a book full of content based on first hand experience rather than the work of a researcher. it 's a book you can graze in depth or browse randomly. I don't know the writer but as you read the text you build a persona in your mind because of the style and tone used and the liberal sprinkling of 'Georgieisms'. You could start a business based on this book it's that comprehensive, I hope there's a follow up on arranging in the pipeline.

This book considers every aspect you could imagine (and some you probably couldn't) about growing and selling cut flowers on a small scale. Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking of travelling down this floral pathway

This book embraces every aspect of being a cut flower grower and is invaluable whether growing for fun or profit. An absolute mine of information written in a very engaging style, with knowledge, wisdom, and a generous sharing of all Georgie has learned over the years.

I wanted to start a cut flower garden and business and came across Georgie Newbery's book after seeing it on Floret Flowers website. Its a brilliant book thats incredibly practical but also very readable. It doesn't spoon feed you or give you a step by step 'this is how you must do things', its more of a guide which you can adapt to your own way of doing things. Its a good place to start if your interested growing in cut flowers either for pleasure or profit.
