Reviews

"Georgie Newbery gives sound and cheery advice on growing, displaying and--if that is your bag--selling [flowers]." --Sunday Times
"Artisan flower farmer Newbery brings horticultural and agricultural logic to the process of farming flowers--planning, planting, growing, harvesting, and then arranging them--in a way that surprises and enlightens." --Publishers Weekly
"The author provides plenty of practical advice for obtaining floral yields even if our particular setting is hardly as conducive as hers for cut-flower production." --William Scheick, Texas Gardener SEED Newsletter
"The Flower Farmer's Year is a delightful read and a solid reference book that will find a prominent place alongside Lynn Byczynski's The Flower Farmer, Sarah Raven's The Cutting Garden and other 'bibles' on every farmer-florists' bookshelf, my own included.' --Erin Benzakien, floretflowers.com
"There are plenty of books on the market that discuss growing small-scale vegetables for farming and marketing; but fewer that do the same for cut flowers. That's one reason why The Flower Farmer's Year is a standout." --D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
