Library Journal Review

Both of these general guides to growing and using flowers and seeds as decoration are beautifully illustrated with outstanding color photography. Alexander deals only with the uses of dried plants, and she has an extensive section devoted to individual plants with requirements for harvesting and drying. Spours emphasizes fresh flowers in rather informal arrangements based on color. Her simple "posies in a vase" are quite lovely, and her instructions for assembling arrangements are easy to follow. Both books reflect modern trends in flower arrangement and would be welcome in public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
