The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers has announced the publication of a new original book, as well as the reprint of another popular volume. 

Both are of interest to commercial growers, florists, nursery people, botanical gardens and arboreta, extension educators, researchers, and instructors.

Postharvest Handling of Cut Flowers and Greens

The collaborative effort behind this book has produced a critical resource for commercial cut flower growers, retail and wholesale florists, and designers. Detailed information on harvesting and processing, ethylene control and postharvest testing, and forcing woody cuts is presented. Have postharvest questions about the flowers you grow or sell? More than 200 genera are covered in a clear and easy-to-use layout, including annuals, perennials, bulbs, and woody plants, as well as a wide range of foliage and tropical species.

Woody Cut Stems - the reprint

This invaluable reference had been out of print for several years. If you're growing shrubs or trees for cut flowers, or if you're considering adding them to your production line, this textbook is essential. Lane Greer and John Dole know what kind of information growers need, and they deliver it, in their own inimitable style.
