Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suzanne McIntire describes how to plan a cutting garden, choose suitable plants, keep the garden in good order, and harvest a bountiful crop - all with charm and humor. Using both common and botanical names, she discusses in depth a wide variety of herbaceous perennials, biennials, annuals, and bulbs, while also including strategies for coping with the effects of hot summers and cold winters.

Book News Annotation:

In this paperback edition of the 2002 book, a seasoned northern Virginia gardener shares her expertise for those who wish to grow rather than buy their bouquets. After addressing the challenges of finding space for a cutting garden, having flowers to cut each season, and choosing vases, she describes 200 plants suitable for the mid-Atlantic region. Some color photos reinforce her case.
