I've been so pleased that this 1969 book has been reprinted, as it was so helpful in planning my own garden. Thought others might find it useful. No color photos, just a few black/white sketches, but densely packed with good info, written by a couple who taught horticulture at Cornell. Best of all, it's only $5.95.
I'm recommending this mostly for personal home gardeners like myself, though someone with a small flower business may find it of interest. Of course the latest cultivars aren't in it, but the internet can keep us uptodate there ...just read through the table of contents. The title says it all.
Oh, the title is "Gardening for Flower Arrangement" by Arno Nehrling and Irene Nehrling. josh
