Make That Hyacinths!

Posted by on February 4, 2007 in Media/Reviews

The Miami New Times gave Flower Confidential a great little write-up in anticipation of my event at Books & Books in Coral Gables on Feb 10,  but quoted me as saying that for Valentine’s Day, I was hoping for "Chinese hydrangeas."  What I actually said was "hyacinths" and I went on to explain why I thought they were such a sensual flower–so fragrant, so springlike, so slow to open–but somehow that came across as Chinese hydrangeas.

Anyway, they say:  "A brilliant horticultural writer…Stewart’s book gives a dramatic overview of the centuries-old trade, illustrating the life of industry flora from growth to sale."

And the Miami Herald wrote a feature here.


  1. Amy,
    I am also a fan of your writing! Bravo and thanks for digging into a subject matter that most of us do not know we can become so interested in. You sold me! I will look for more of your works.

  2. Amy,
    I see you are traveling a lot these days. I will be speaking in Salt Lake City, Utah March 8-11 at the Home and Garden Show, are you speaking there as well? Would love to meet you sometime.
