This charming little hard cover book includes 60+ full-colour botanical illustrations, basic botany and history, everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden, as well as dividing tubers to propagate more flowers, tips for creating beautiful arrangements and preserving flowers, quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers. Like a bouquet of dahlias, this book is an affordable little luxury for gardeners and flower lovers.

“Next time you are lucky enough to be someone’s house guest, consider arriving with a bouquet of either one of the Little Book of Flowers. . . Each book includes snappy discussions of the origins of the species, cultivation techniques and suggestions for display. The charm lies in Poole’s art. . . there’s a distinctly retro appeal to the watercolour here, which slow you down to linger over crinkled petals and bombshell flower heads. These books don’t pretend to be encyclopedic; rather, Weaver is discerning in her choices.”

–New York Times

“In ‘A Little Book of Flowers, ‘ a new series of single bloom titles, author Tara Austen Weaver weaves together basic botany and culture. Each posey-size volume reads like a very smart love letter to cultivating beauty. . . Charming illustrations by Emily Poole and numerous quotes tug at our horticultural heartstrings, while a serviceable glossary and resource section at the back of each book indulge our yearning to grow more flowers and deepen our knowledge of the natural world.”

–Seattle Times, Pacific NW Magazine

“If the words “hidden gem” make you sit up and pay attention, this just may be the perfect book for the nature lover on your list!…It’s a must for flower fans. If you wanted to give a lavish gift, pair this with a fresh flower subscription.”
