In Bloom

  • A must for anyone dreaming of making a cut flower patch a reality. In this beautiful book, brimming with inspirational photographs, Clare Nolan reveals her secrets for growing a bountiful harvest as well as styling spectacular homegrown displays that will fill your home with colour and the gorgeous scent of the garden year-round. Learn how to grow, harvest and style your own garden flowers.

    Planting cut flowers brings that `grow-your-own' excitement to a whole new level - being able to step out of the back door and pick a single stem for beside the bed or pull together a posy for a friend is a joy. Clare takes the mystique out of what to grow and guides you through the entire process - from choosing the plants to suit both your garden and home decor and laying out your cutting patch, to planning ahead so you get your perfect palette of colour, texture and shape to play with at the right time.

    The chapter on arranging will inspire you to create spectacular arrangements for your home without the need for complicated floristry techniques.

  • About the author - a passionate gardener for many years with a burgeoning devotion to flowers and plants, Clare went back to night school to study horticulture with the RHS to fill in the gaps and add to her skills. Clare sees the garden not only as an extension of our living space but as a way of reconnecting our homes (and ourselves) with nature, calming the mind and lifting the spirit in the process.
