The Flower Shop by Sally Page A Year in the Life of a Country Garden Shop $23
If you have ever walked into a flower shop and thought "this is where I would like to spend some time" then this is the book for you.
240 page full color
It is a record of a year in the life of an English country flower shop through which you see the changing seasons, and the day to day life of the shop in beautiful color photos.
Lots of flower shop secrets:
Five essential vases, secrets about cutting hyacinths for bouquets, what to do with roses that get floppy (wrap their heads in paper so they are held upright, re-cut the stems and stand them in very hot water. Leave them there overnight and if they can be revived they will be by the morning). How to keep gerbera daisies fresh longer. And much more.
A wonderful gift book for anyone that yearns to have their own flower shop.
