There is much disagreement among gardeners regarding the best way to nurture garden flowers from seed. It seems there are as many theories and methods of cultivating a private flower garden as there are species of seed. Opinions on which plants look best together can also create strong feelings - carefully planned and cultivated gardens not to one's own taste are often looked at askance. The two authors subject each other's views to the closest scrutiny and, rather than attempt to reach a consensus, speak in their individual voices wherever they feel the need.

This unique book is a dialogue between two extraordinarily knowledgeable & opinionated plantsmen who offer valuable advice on which seed-raised flowers to grow, how to germinate & tend to them, & how to use them in the garden. The discussion is informative, urbane, & entertaining.From Booklist:
Lloyd has written nine garden books, and Rice has written three. This paperback's format is a dialogue between these two English gardeners. They cover 230 genera, which amounts to thousands of annual and perennial plants. Their first chapter deals with seeds that need extra (artificial) heat to germinate; this is followed by chapters on sowing seeds outdoors and in cold frames. But the bulk of the book is an alphabetical listing of plants, including details about color, form, species, pollination, hardiness, scent, flowering times, and how best to grow them from seed. George Cohen
