From the Publisher
Praise from the Press
Stephen Orr, editor-in-chief, Better Homes & Gardens
'I’ve been an avid fan of Erin’s beautiful photos of her flower farm on Instagram for years. Now, seeing her work preserved for posterity in a book is pure magic.'
Melissa Ozawa, garden and features editor, Martha Stewart Living
'One of the leading voices in the farmer-florist movement, Erin is a tireless advocate for locally-grown flowers. Here she has put together an indispensable four-season growing guide that will inspire you to sow your own cutting garden—whether you plant one row or hundreds.'
Grace Bonney, founder of DesignSponge* and author of In the Company of Women
'Among a sea of new florists and floral books, Floret Flowers stands out. Erin Benzakein's integrity, openness and passion for flowers is unmistakable. In her debut book she not only introduces us to the basics of growing our own flowers, she shares her deep love and understanding of gardening in a way that will leave even the most doubtful grower feeling inspired to get their hands in the dirt.'

What I like first, is her excitement. Author loves flowers - Cut Flowers ! I thought cutting flowers was a No No :) But it is not, it is a Yes Yes. Who knew that cutting flowers actually makes more Blooms ! Second I love the easy to follow tips for planting and growing and even arranging. Erin picks out about a dozen plants and explains watering, spacing and feeding. I have Learned Way Too Much About Compost in the last few months!! (of course you never know too much about compost)
This also makes a great reference book. Perhaps you want to start out slow and tackle some other things in following years, so you can look at following chapters - or you can skip around.
Erin's excitement is contagious and I find myself planting Sweet Peas, which I had never before heard of. My Petunias and Zinnias are doing well and I can't wait for my Chrysanthemums. I have my pinching and cutting tools all ready...c'mon blooms ! This book was very valuable to this beginner.
I've given this book as a gift twice now and keep my copy on the coffee table. I think this book will go down as one of the most iconic gardening books. I'm grateful to Erin for her passion and hard work, she's authentic and generous and we need more like her.
