Martha's New Book on Flowers

We will have to wait until February 13, 2018, but I'm already excited about this book. "Martha's Flowers" promises to be the ultimate Martha Stewart guide to planting, growing, harvesting and arranging flowers. Kevin Sharkey, the editorial director of decorating at MSL, partnered with Martha to create the book. Below is an image of the cover and a description of the book from the publisher:
FROM THE PUBLISHER: Martha Stewart's lifelong love of flowers began at a young age, as she dug in and planted alongside her father in their family garden, growing healthy, beautiful blooms, every year. The indispensable lessons she learned then--and those she has since picked up from master gardeners--form the best practices she applies to her voluminous flower gardens today. For the first time, she compiles the wisdom of a lifetime spent gardening into a practical yet inspired book. Learn how and when to plant, nurture, and at the perfect time, cut from your garden. With lush blooms in hand, discover how to build stunning arrangements. Accompanied by beautiful photographs of displays in Martha's home, bursting with ideas, and covering every step from seed to vase, Martha's Flowers is a must-have handbook for flower gardeners and enthusiasts of all skill levels.

Hardcover; Clarkson Potter; 288 pages

Great news! Finally a book for gardeners and non cooks ( I am tired of buying Ms Stewart's books for everyone but me). Now if only she could find a PBS station will to produce a gardening show or edit and rebroadcast gardening sections from the long missed Martha Stewart Living program.

I love this this concept. Even though I am a chef, it's nice to see a different genre from MSL besides cookbooks. I think this is a move in the right direction. It will be nice to see Kevin's taste and eye for floral arranges as well.

Have been waiting for a book like this for a long time. Martha's original Gardening book is a masterpiece which I browse through time and again. If this book is even a tenth of the quality of that one I will be very pleased. Martha's content lately has been so focused on Food Food Food. Now please do a show on Gardening and a book or show on Decorating!
