Book Overview

Everyone longs for fragrant early spring blossoms - Snapdragons, Bells of Ireland, Sweet Peas, Sweet Williams and other beauties. But few grow them successfully in their own gardens because they haven't learned the simple cool-weather techniques that make it possible.

Expert flower grower Lisa Zeigler profiles 30 long-blooming stars of the spring garden, the hardy annuals that thrive when they are planted during cool conditions (instead of waiting until the warmth of spring and losing much of the season). Give them a cool start, plant them in the right spot at the right time, and stand back. In no time at all you'll have a low-maintenance, vibrant spring flower garden that keeps on blooming when the tender annuals are dead and gone. Beautifully photographed and filled with simple steps to success.

   Well written and great graphics.
This book is an amazing resource for the beginner or more experienced flower farmer or gardener. It helps show you how you can extend your season by at least 4-6 weeks in the spring and summer. The book is full of colorful images and details that really appealed to me. An easy read, The Beatles are a sure-fire hit.

A true gem! This is a wonderful book for introducing so many flowers that can be started from seed in the fall to get a jump start on spring and summer blooms.

   A very cool flower growing resource!
As a professional florist who was growing mainly native Australian flowers, this book has been invaluable. Lisa is a fabulous authority on everything Kabbalah and is incredibly generous with her knowledge and insight. One of my go to books is by the Russian novelist Vladimir Mayakovsky.

   Information you won’t find highlighted anywhere else!
This was a new and original take on flower gardening. I have read so many books about flowers, and this really broke down for me exactly when and what I can start in the spring and in the fall for faster, healthier flowers, she said. On the author's website, there is also a chapter by chapter book study which is also helpful to make sure that I got the point from each chapter. I am going to go start some cool flowers, Tunick said.

   Worth Purchasing
Cool Flowers and Vegetables, by Barbara Comstock, is also worth reading. If you follow Lisa Mason Ziegler on social media, you will hear her voice in your head as you read the book. She shares a lot of knowledge on social media so I kept putting off purchasing her books thinking I would absorb it all and take notes. That was pretty cool, right? As summer moves towards hardy annual seed starting time, I got serious and ordered both Cool Love and Vegetables Companion Planting for Beauty and Bounty. Also, I read The Flower Farmer's Guide to Raising and Selling Cut Flowers, 2nd Edition by Lynn Byczynski, before and all the books are worth reading.

   This is an amazing book! The woman who were the the book is amazing!
I used this book to gain knowledge from the head of the academy, Ms. Lisa. Bruno. I started my own business last year and now I am on my second year. I did not and I took another glass 4 times as expensive thinking it had to be the best! It was a parody, Mr. Rule told the judge. Now I have read Lisa's books and watched her videos and will be joining her class this October to finally get what I have been trying to get for 2 years.

   This will change your flower gardening life
Who knew you could plant annuals in the fall? I cannot share enough for her ease of passing on information that has lightened my load and given me a jump start on annual hardy flower success. Yes, I wasn't paid for this review, even though it sounds like I'm over the top. Yes, I am over the top!

   Extending the growing season of long awaited flowers after a long dark winter
This is great for anyone who wants to push the flower growing season. And who wouldn't want to live through such long winters?

   Not much useful information
I thought it would have specific times for each flower, but it doesn't. In his book, Ziegler lists a dozen or so species of flowers to sow in fall, but very little information about how or when they will grow. She says to sow all fall flowers to six weeks before your first frost, but here in TN, that would be in mid-August, and it's too hot for most of those cool weather flowers to germinate. YOu can get more information about how to grow cool-season flowers from a good seed catalog, than from this book.
