Have you ever wanted a wild flower garden? A wild flower garden is not just a garden that has gone wild; in fact, it is quite the opposite. A garden that has become wild normally looks a bit of a muddle, whereas a wild flower has to have a closely controlled environment. Garden flowers have been hardened, so to speak. They have been cultivated and crossed so that they can put up with not being taken care of by the average gardener who does not know much about gardening, although there are some very delicate garden plants too.
However, wild flowers have never had this treatment. They grow only where the circumstances are right or they do not grow at all. It is practically impossible to grow wild flowers where they would not naturally grow. This is why many people's attempts at creating a wild flower garden flop so miserably - they have expected the wild flowers to just grow wild without having made the correct environment.
Therefore, if you want to create such a flower garden, you will first have to determine what kind of flowers you want to grow. Do you want meadow flowers, woodland flowers, hedgerow flowers, marsh or riverside flowers? You can amalgamate some of these styles, of course. You could merge meadow and hedgerow varieties, if you put a hedge border around your garden. Thanks again for choosing this book, I hope you enjoy it!

Not really worth it.
I didn't realize how short this book was. really didn't have the information about growing and selling flowers. way too much general info without giving you flower growing advice. definitely was not worth the little bit that I paid for it. I'm returning it.
