A SUPER BLOOM is a natural phenomenon in which climate and conditions align to allow plants to flower in such abundance that they transform the landscape, bathing it in colour. When a super bloom arises, it is a miraculous sight. Plants respond to these conditions with a maximum abundance of flowers and colour. Super Bloom is a love letter to flowers. It is a manifesto for maximum plants, maximum flowers, maximum beauty. It is perfect for the current time and trends. It also shows how to create your own super bloom.
Leading plant specialist Jac Semmler revives the appeal of treasured, old-world beautiful flowers for the modern garden. An innovative, immersive photographic style by Sarah Pannell illustrates techniques such as planting seeds, caring for seedlings, transplanting flowers, propagating and dividing rhizomes, training plants as well as offering a breathtaking bee’s eye view of the garden.
Natural beauty nourishes something deep within us. Whether it’s seeing a meadow of grasses or wildflowers, watching nasturtiums run rampant, marvelling at the smell of a particular rose, or watching the tulip heads wilt and drop, these are the moments that make us human, that connect us to the world and remind us that beauty is everywhere. Super Bloom is a modern gardening classic.
