I have a worn out copy of the 1993 copy of this book. At the time I was growing cut flowers for farmers markets and on consignment. This book was indespensable. I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING THAT COMPARES. From sall propagation methods to the vase all questions will be answered. So mamy cut plant material I never even thought of using. This is the book I used to prepare lectures on cutflower gardens.Also he writes about which plants do or donot do well in the south.
