If dried flowers were once associated with a dusty corner of a room, Carolyn Dunster’s beautiful homage to the ephemerality of plants and flowers very much brings them back into the modern, stylish home. Whether you’re a floral designer, enjoy crafting with botanicals or are seeking to add colour and texture to your abode, Cut & Dry: The Modern Guide to Dried Flowers from Growing to Styling is both valuable reference guide and covetable coffee table tome.
Floristry, botanical styling, planting design and garden writing are all in a day’s work for Dunster and this holistic approach to dried flowers shines through. In chapters on The Best Plants for Drying, How to Grow Your Own, Drying Methods, Styling and Projects to Try Yourself, each papery bloom, sculptural seedhead, feathery grass or turning stem of foliage is intimately described from a gardener’s as well as an artist’s perspective.
