A cut flower garden is a dedicated space for growing flowers intended for bouquets. It's a delightful way to bring the beauty of your garden indoors.
Choose a sunny, wind-sheltered spot for your cut flower garden. Remember, many flowers suitable for cutting can also be grown in containers.
Design your garden for efficiency. Narrow, rectangular spaces are easy to tend and harvest. Consider raised beds for easier planting and harvesting.
Even a small cutting garden can be productive. By growing plants with long stems and spacing them closely, you can maximize your yield.
Flowers can be grown alongside vegetables. They add color and can deter certain pests, making your garden more vibrant and healthy.
Good cut flowers have strong stems, a long vase life, and a high yield. Consider the colors, the flowers you love, and the rooms you want to fill.
Plan for all seasons, grow cut-and-come-again flowers, stagger planting times, aim for variety, plant complementary colors, and don't forget foliage plants.
