Flowers for cutting

 It is so lovely to see flowers blooming in the garden and sometimes we find it hard to cut them, so why not create your own Cutting Garden.  You don't need a huge amount of space, you just need to find a nice sunny spot somewhere out of the way where you can grow a selection of plants that are productive and will provide you with an endless supply of flowers that you can cut to your hearts content to create your own lovely bouquets to brighten your indoor space or to give to friends and family or you may even want to make up some posies to sell at your gate.

We will be running a workshop later in the year on how to plan your cutting garden and what are the best plants to grow to give you a great supply.  Even if you don't have a huge space available to you, planting flowers in your vegetable garden is not only a great way to have some flowers but you will have the added bonus of attracting bees and other pollinators to your garden and in turn, you will have a great crop of vegetables as well! 

Our cutting garden this year was filled with dahlias, zinnias, queen anne's lace and it has been flowering all summer and we are now into late autumn and it is still providing us with lots of colour. Be sure to check back in spring for all of our range of annuals and perennials that we will have available.

 If you want an inspiring and informative read, then be sure to take a look at one of my favourite books Floret Farms Cut Flower Garden by Erin Benzakein in our store.  Erin will provide you with equal parts of instruction and inspiration on how to grow, harvest and arrange seasonal blooms.
