Reviewed in the United States on 12 April 2019
This book is satisfyingly thick without weighing a ton, and begins with brief discussions of your toolbox, proper techniques for preparing flowers, and (my favorite feature) an "ingredient chart" indicating the many functions of different plant types in an arrangement, such as focal flower or "bits". The book presents 43 varieties of flowers, a plethora of containers, and multitudes of design arrangements. It includes your typical florist flowers, of course, but also many unusual ones, as well as other plant species. Examples include vegetables, pomegranates, thistles, cherry tomatoes, acorns, artichokes, herbs, green chestnuts, sugared grapes, fall leaves, berries from shrubs, succulents, viburnum berries, fruit, and eucalyptus. Containers include common and uncommon vases, such as cans, jars, and ceramics; but also boxes; shallow dishes; a galvanized metal 3-tiered shop tray; log slices; teapots and pitchers; test tubes; trophies; milk jugs and buckets; baskets; wreaths, leis, and bouquets. Plant sources are presented by type in alphabetical order, and paired with other plants that will work well with them. In addition to the full-page color photos, the arrangements are presented in recipe format: so many branches of this and so many stalks of that, as well as suggestions for a small selection of suitable containers. The only way to go wrong is to not have the listed plant sources or container options. I found the arrangements to be artistic, innovative, creative, novel, colorful, and beautiful. There are so many gorgeous arrangements from which to choose to photograph that it's hard to begin. I would definitely recommend this book to whomever has a garden big enough to actually make the flower arrangements, or to whomever is an avid armchair gardener. This book rates 10⭐️
