One of the first books that had a big impact on me as a gardener was Martha Stewart’s Gardening: Month by Month, which I loved because Stewart’s aesthetics (alas, not her resources!) were so similar to mine. More than 25 years later, I still find inspiration in her books, including her latest, Martha’s Flowers. With its advice and lessons on growing and cutting blooms as well as its gorgeous photos of lush arrangements, this sumptuous volume takes readers through the seasons, bloom by beautiful bloom. - S.B.
