Washington Post & Elle
From the Sunday Washington Post Book Review (which gives Teresa Sabankaya and Boony Doon Garden Co. well-deserved attention).
Stewart’s journey takes us down many such paths, all connected by her own curiosity and highly readable prose. The greatest value of Flower Confidential, however, is that it was written at all. We know so little of the ways simple daily items are brought to us that such a book helps us grasp our modern world. Who knows? Flower Confidential may compel us to return to something purer, more local. It may send us in search of our own version of Teresa Sabankaya’s flower kiosk.
Flower Confidential is also in the March 2007 issue of Elle. Page 420. The caption on the roses is priceless:
Nice Stems. These six-foot-tall Ecuadorian roses are an inch taller than Karolina Kurkova and just as organic.
