"This book is so much more than A Year in Flowers. It is the work of a passionate team of articulate artists led by grower and visionary Erin Benzakein, who has been an important proponent of small farms with big ideas. Erin’s romantic ideas have been turned into a real flower and seed business, as well as a social media teaching phenomenon and a source of valuable content for the home gardener and flower lover."
