The Plant Lover's Guide to Dahlias (The Plant Lover’s Guides) Reviews
As an avid dahlia grower I had high hopes for this book. It appears this publisher's series is a pretty weakly edited, poorly done idea. The majority of the book is random photos of dahlia species with a tiny bit of info on each. Not very helpful. I would recommend online resources above this book such as Floret Flowers blog, Love n Fresh Flowers blog, etc. Lots of farmer florists out there that give great advice on growing this wonderful plant. Good luck.
Such a disappointment. I never knew there were so many ugly and plain varieties of Dahlias... so many wasted pages. Many were repeated in more than one picture, too, Why grow a Dahlia that looks like a Cosmos, there are so many fabulous ones to choose from! I was hoping the section on propagation would carry the weight but I did not learn anything new from what I already knew.
the plant lover's guide to Dahlias is every thing I hoped it would be. It is full of information Planting, caring for, winter protection if you are in northern zones. A big plus is the hundreds of pictures of dahlias and their names so the reader can find the plants they would like. Further there is an index concerning who to write for further info and to order from, plus and where to find Dahlias farms.
Great book given to my husband as a birthday gift. He loves it and finds it very informative, educational and is accompanied by wonderful pictures. A great purchase. A very good book on dahlias.
love it, better than my other dahlia books, very informative, great photos and color.
I had a crush on dahlias until I purchased this book...now it is a full blown love affair! Very readable, educational and beautiful photos. Wonderful addition to my gardening book collection.
Especially appreciated the explanation of the complex genetics of these beautiful flowers.
