Another beautiful gardening title, Flowers for Friends is inspiring, image rich and practical volume detailing the basics of 'at-home' flower arranging supported by joyful, seasonally produced arrangements. It moves the reader's focus away from the pursuit of perfection and instead encourages them to take time out for creative flower play to be enjoyed in daily life or, if they're lucky, given to friends. Photographed and written by Julia herself over the last year in her Christchurch garden, this is a book that will appeal to gardeners of all levels of experience, reigniting the easy going domestic practice of bringing the garden indoors. 

This is a book about flower arranging from the perspective of a gardener. Harvesting from the garden means short, wonky stems, bruised petals, insects crawling out of blooms and the open invitation to claim a weed or vege as vase fodder. Flowers for Friends is both a reflection, and story of the seasons brought indoors by Julia Atkinson-Dunn when harvesting from her garden and foraging in Canterbury, New Zealand. Written in her signature casual tone (as seen in her first book Petal Power), Julia offers an accessible guide to picking, conditioning and arranging home- grown treasures, celebrating their quirks and encouraging unexpected combinations. Seasonal chapters profile arrangements she has made, detailing plants in season and inviting readers to play without the hunt for perfection, or restraint.
