Recommends it for: everyone who loves flowers and is on the scent for a home business
Recommended to Sara by: R, sorta
I just finished reading this this evening and I WANT TO DO THIS! One day. Sometime. It's all my big sister's fault (that's you, R). The author makes it sound so feasible, yet entirely (am I sweating?) real. I could grow flowers. People would buy them here. I feel sure of it. And I already have loads of books on flower arranging. Boy, wouldn't it be fun to have acres of zinnias? For now (if I can ever get up enough courage to sink spade into this soil) a patch of cosmos will be enough. :)
Bycznski has written what is probably the definitive book for starting specialty cut flower growers. Written in a readable style assuming minimal knowledge with great photographs, it is an easy read that doesn't gloss over the labor and pitfalls but still manages to inspire. I highly recommend this to anybody interested in commercial cut flowers on any scale.
This is a really good book!! it has everything you need to know about growing flowers, selling them to florist and anything you need to know to get started with your business and
it's really inspiration.
The nuts and bolts or stamens and pistols (hehe!) of knowing how to grow and market flowers...
