If you ask any gardener, cultivating flowers is one of the simple things that make the mania of contemporary life worthwhile. Time slows, the sun beats down, and the scent of damp earth combines to lower blood pressure and heighten awareness of the timeless rhythms of life.
You can grow flowers in pots or in the ground. They may be annuals for just a single season, or perennials that come back year after year. Some flowers are great for cutting and some are just for general outdoor display. They come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Often flowers are more than just pretty; frequently they have other uses such as teas or cooking.
If you want to know the basics, history, cultivation, and requirement for growing a wide variety of flowers, look no further.
