Good morning everyone!
Trained horticulturist Louise Curley writes for the Guardian, The Simple Things and Gardens Illustrated magazines. She also runs a flower and garden blog called Wellywoman - A life in Wellies. She gardens organically and has kept an allotment for four years on which she grows all her cut flowers.
Her lovely book The Cut Flower Patch has been released this month in the UK and is absolutely beautiful. Another book that makes me crave for a garden. This book gives you a lot of advice regarding how to choose the right plants for your garden, and focuses on flowers I love like zinnia, or snapdragon. I really love the section in the book dedicated to foliage and fillers, that are for me so crucial for nice bouquets.
This book is also very interesting, even if you don't have your own garden, as the 100 last pages of the book are about arranging flowers with a lot of inspiration beautifully photographed by Jason Ingram .
