Slow Flowers Journal: The Best of Slow Flowers Journal from the Pages of Florists’ Review (2017–2019)

We love the Slow Flow­ers Jour­nal and its founder and cre­ator Debra Prinz­ing, the doyenne of local­ly grown flow­ers. Last year, she pub­lished a book of her best Slow Flow­ers Jour­nal arti­cles that appear in Florists’ Review mag­a­zine each issue. If you are inter­est­ed in the cur­rent trends in flo­ral design, but missed out on the Florists’ Review series, this book is a per­fect addi­tion to your library.

What We Think

The pho­tog­ra­phy is superb.

The writ­ing is con­ge­nial and intimate.

The sub­jects are invit­ing and inspiring.
