Cultivated: The Elements of Floral Style elevates floral design
to fine art in this richly informative work on the principles of floral
style. A charming and intelligent mentor, Christin Geall emboldens
designers, gardeners, and entrepreneurs to think differently and deeply
about their work with flowers as she draws upon the fine arts and
historical sources, exploring Baroque music, the paintings of the
Impressionists, or the work of floral innovators like Gertrude Jekyll
and Constance Spry.

Covering all aspects of floral design,
including choosing plants to grow and arrange, selecting tools and
vessels, balancing color and form, and even photographing and selling
arrangements, Cultivated offers universal lessons for all levels of
practitioners, budgets, and materials. Geall's stunning photographs of
her own lush designs illustrate techniques for creating brilliant
arrangements that spark the imagination
