Product description

Review

"I love this book celebrating garden-grown, imperfect, shapely flowers in glorious, dynamic, fecund vases in the Dutch still life painting style. There are elm flowers here, banksia rose twirls, plums on the branch, coppery bracken fronds-a harvest of beautiful things, overlaying an impressive depth of research and authoritative advice on all the practical skills to know to become a good flower arranger." - Sarah Raven, flower grower and award-winning writer "Sumptuous, smart and illuminating, Cultivated: The Elements of Floral Style is at once floragorgeous and florapractical. Gardener, photographer and Kew-trained designer Christin Geall, florist-in-residence at estates from Cambo in Scotland to the venerable Chatsworth, has reinvented cut flower arrangements for the twenty-first century-and now she gives us lessons. Her sassy reflections, on topics from deep ecology to painting with flowers, are beautifully organized, richly informative, and fun-as Instagram followers of her sublime photographs already know. If botanical collage artist Mrs. Delany returned to earth craving just one book, I'd give her Cultivated: The Elements of Floral Style." - Molly Peacock, author of The Paper Garden: An Artist Begins Her Life's Work at 72 "What a delight, not only a jaw-droppingly beautiful feast for the eyes, but filled with practical advice, charming anecdotes, and reaffirming life lessons. This is a book to be cherished." - Sophie Conran, designer and creator of sophieconran.com "Christin Geall is the rare talent who has the eye of an artist, the pen of a poet, and the heart of a gardener. Cultivated brilliantly pairs Christin's honest, thought-provoking essays with breathtaking photographs of her exquisite floral designs. Drawing from history, art, theater, literature, and her own fascinating flower journey, she boils down otherwise intimidating design concepts and explains them in a way that is both informative and inspiring." - Erin Benzakein, author of Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, inspiring and content rich!
Reviewed in the United States on 25 June 2020
This book is fantastic! I own many floristry books, so was undecided about buying yet another book. I mean, how different could it be? The answer is very! I bought site unseen and am so glad I did. Not only is it a truly beautiful work of art, with stunning photos, but more importantly for me the content is meaty! I Already understand the basic concepts of color and understand using complimentary, analogous, or monochromatic colors. However Christin’s chapter on color was well worth the price of the book alone! Want to learn more about color perception, understanding value, opacity and luminosity? All covered! Believe me if you want to know the why’s behind good floral design rather than the how’s this is a book to buy, read, digest, practice and then repeat again and again!

Reviewed in the United States on 12 May 2020
Such a well written book. I learned so much and small things like how to keep a lilac alive longer makes a big difference for someone who enjoys them so much. I got this book because I recently planted David Austin roses in my garden. I wanted to do the beauty’s justice but just couldn’t photograph how magnificent they were. This book has helped so much with my garden and my creativity. My kids even enjoy reading it before bed and naps. We read it together and then they try to name all the flowers and colors. During this quarantine its helping us enjoy the time we have as a family together.
