Favorite Flower Gardening Resources

Posted by Lindsay Kluge on Monday, May 13, 2019

Spring flower gardening. These colors popping up in May are truly making my heart sing. As I’ve been going through some old books, I came across some of my favorite flower gardening resources from years ago – even before college – that I’ve kept around and referenced over and over again. I know it’s easy to just google a question, or look up your gardening Q’s on your phone. But personally, I love having a great big ‘ol library of books in my house (predominantly filled with gardening resources and treehouse books).

Here are my top 5 favorite flower gardening resources:

Armitage’s Garden Perennials – not just for flower gardening, but all the perennial color gardening you could dream of.

Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide – this is my favorite flower pocket companion for when I see a wild flower growing, and want to ID it for possibly buying and/or planting in my garden later.

Floret Farm’s Cut Flower Garden – All you need to know on how to grow, harvest, cut and arrange your seasonal blooms!

The Flower Farmer – This one is more specific if you’d like to grow flowers to sell (on a super small, or even a large scale). An organic growers guide to raising and selling cut flowers.

American Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Plants & Flowers – a beautiful and incredibly comprehensive guide to what to plant in what zone, best growing conditions, harvesting times, and flower species basics! A must have for your garden library.

I’d love to see your flower gardens coming to life! Share them with #myotherhouseisgreenhouse and let’s grow together!
