My book Vegetables Love Flowers will lead you to an organic garden where good bugs eat bad bugs, pollinators are abundant, and the beautiful bouquet on the table came from your own garden. A garden where beneficial creatures come for the flowers but stay for the pest!I share in this book why flowers are the missing piece of the chain of life in many gardens. Flowers attract pollinators, beneficial insects and other good creatures to the garden that provide nature's best and most powerful pest control, pollination, and more.There is no better way to bring flowers into the vegetable patch then with a cutting garden. A perfect match, harvesting fresh cut flowers each week alongside the vegetables keeps fresh blooms coming all season long. This constant presence of flowers in the garden keeps all these good guys we have attracted right where we need them, in the garden.Vegetables Love Flowers includes why to grow flowers, how-to grow and keep a cutting garden, what flowers to grow, and most importantly--- how I garden without using pesticides that can harm and kill the very beneficial creatures we want to live in the garden.

The photography is beautiful and makes me longer for summer with vases of flowers all through the house. She touches on the insects that are attracted, natural ways to encourage other beneficial birds and animals, and, my favorite part of the book, the garden plans! I have a large 40x60 garden and cannot wait to spend the next few weeks plotting out my vegetable beds AND flower beds! Two big thumbs up!
