The rich soils and variable climate of Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley are home to over 150 types of flowers, grasses, and foliage from May until November. As a flower farmer, Amanda Muis Brown of Humble Burdock Farms uses her innate understanding of the unpredictable Maritime growing season and a palette of farm fresh flowers to create stunning and joyful designs with all of the colour, chaos, and texture of the natural world.
With lyrical, narrative text, [title] takes readers through a year on the farm, showcasing the joys and obstacles of planning, growing, maintaining, and celebrating local flowers. Divided into seasonal chapters, subdivided by month, readers will learn what is growing and when, and how to prepare, cultivate, and enjoy their own flower gardens. Includes detailed profiles of the author's favourite flowers, as well as sidebars on everything from farm wildlife to tips and tricks for keeping your cut flowers beautiful, and flower activities and decorations—from flower crowns to holiday centrepieces and kid-friendly crafts—for every season. Includes over 300 stunning colour photographs.
