  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
This greatly revised and expanded edition of Specialty Cut Flowers offers a unique perspective on cut flower production, bringing together in one place the information growers need to propagate and cultivate their eye-catching plants. Introductory chapters offer a discussion of domestic and foreign production, a brief overview of trends, and general comments and techniques for the postharvest care of flowers. The main body of the book gives extensive coverage of annual, perennial, bulbous, and woody species for commercial cut flower production. For easier reference, plants now appear in single, straightforward A-to-Z order. This is an indispensable reference for the nursery bookshelf.

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.
