”Once a flower has been cut or harvested, it is in the interest of the market gardener, the florist, and the end consumer, to make it last as long as possible.
This innovative and practical guide explains some basic, inexpensive techniques of how to make cut flowers last longer, and also how to select prime quality flowers. It includes what to do and what to avoid in handling, storing and displaying more than 100 common flower varieties, including Australian natives.
While proper post harvest techniques will not magically transform poor quality flowers into first class material, a few basic, inexpensive techniques can maximise the life of good quilaty material.
Authro Rod Jones outlines in simple terms the science behind cut flower care. This book should be equally useful for florists, growers, and anyone who loves flowers.”
