This book has some truly excellent information. It has many detailed pages about how to grow, harvest dry and store flowers using a variety of techniques. The rest of the book is taken up with an encyclopedia of different flowers what they are best used for, how to dry them, how well they stand up and everything else you need to know about the plant.It is divided into sections on annuals, perennials, trees, wild plants so it takes a little looking around to find what you want. If you are interested in growing and drying your own flowers this is the book you need. If you want a book on creating designs with the flowers this is not the book. It has a few designs but that is not it's primary focus. Consider this as an essential part of your library to complement the arrangement books. My only complaint is that the index is not as comprehensive as it could be. Sometimes you have to page through the book to find the plant you want even if you do know the latin name.

A bit of a boring writting style with a lot of common information. Nice pictures.
