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 colour 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.
