Martha's Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying by Martha Stewart, Kevin Sharkey

The essential resource from Martha Stewart, with expert advice and lessons on gardening and making the most of your spectacular blooms

Martha Stewart's lifelong love of flowers began at a young age, as she dug in and planted alongside her father in their family garden, growing healthy, beautiful blooms, every year. The indispensable lessons she learned then--and those she has since picked up from master gardeners--form the best practices she applies to her voluminous flower gardens today. For the first time, she compiles the wisdom of a lifetime spent gardening into a practical yet inspired book. Learn how and when to plant, nurture, and at the perfect time, cut from your garden. With lush blooms in hand, discover how to build stunning arrangements. Accompanied by beautiful photographs of displays in Martha's home, bursting with ideas, and covering every step from seed to vase, Martha's Flowers is a must-have handbook for flower gardeners and enthusiasts of all skill levels.

My Review

This book came to me on a dreary winter day, and it sure brought a smile to my face, and the more I perused the pages the happier I became. The book is cocked full of beautiful pictures of flowers, and I sure can’t wait for spring.
While Martha is planning her seventh garden, she has inspired me to try a few different plants, with all the information she has provided, such as the zones that the plants thrive in, and the soil needed to have success.
Even if you never want to plant and garden this book is chocked full of beautiful photos that will captivate you, and I find myself going back for more, and having it my coffee table captures the eyes of my friends.

I received this book through Blogging For Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
