Chelsea designer to publish chrysanthemum handbook

by | 31 May 24 | Garden Design, News | 0 comments

New to the Pavilion Books flower series, comes a chrysanthemum handbook from co-designer of the award-winning Flood Re: The Flood Resilient Garden at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show, Naomi Slade.

Landing on shelves on 15 August, Chrysanthemums: Beautiful Varieties for Home and Garden, guides readers to propagating, growing and cutting the ‘perfect’ chrysanthemum.

Also commonly referred to as mums, chrysanthemums date back thousands of years, originating in ancient China, and still today they are seeing a renewed popularity.

Taking many forms, from open daisies to multi-petalled pompoms, large and small. chrysanthemums come in a variety of colours and shades, from pink, purple and red, to orange, yellow and white – typically flowering in the beginning autumnal months of September and August when temperatures start to drop.

The books author, Slade is a decorated garden designer, and recognised horticultural journalist, having won the Garden Media Guild Practical Journalist of the Year Award in 2022.

Images featured throughout the chrysanthemum handbook were captured by floral and garden photographer, Georgianna Lane, whose work can be found in publications across the world.
