How to Grow Flowers from Seed

Clare Foster and Sabina Rüber


Growing flowers from seed is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to supplement your borders, bringing instant colour to tired gardens. Many of these flowers are also ideal for cutting, so within a single growing season you can produce armfuls of beautiful blooms to cut and bring inside the house.

Author Clare Foster and photographer Sabina Rüber have been experimenting with growing flowers from seed for several years. In this book they pass on that invaluable experience, explaining how and when to sow and grow a huge range of flowers from Aquilegia to Zinnia.

Clare Foster is Garden Editor at House & Garden magazine. She has contributed to numerous newspapers and is the author of Compost (2005), Your Allotment (2007) and, with Sabina Rüber, Painterly Plants (2012).
