This is a book about flower arranging from the perspective of a gardener.
Harvesting from the garden means short, wonky stems, bruised petals, insects crawling out of blooms and the open invitation to claim a week or vege as vase fodder. 'Flowers for Friends' is both a reflection, and a story of the seasons brought indoors by Julia Atkinson-Dunn when harvesting from her garden and foraging in Canterbury, New Zealand.
Julia offers and accessible guide to picking, conditioning and arranging home-grown treasures, celebrating their quirks and encouraging unexpected combinations. Seasonal chapters profile arrangements she has made, detailing plants in season and inviting readers to play without the hunt for perfection.
