Growing Cut Flowers
Having beautiful flowers available for cutting is always a pleasure. And by cutting your flowers, you help encourage continuous blooms throughout the season as well. Even if you don’t have the garden space, there are many varieties that will grow just as well in deep containers. Michelle prefers to do both!
There are so many flowers that work well for cutting; some can last over a week in a vase! If you’re dreaming and designing your spring garden, consider some of the following flowers: Ageratum (tall blue planet or timeless mix), Eucalyptus, Dahlia, Zinnia, Calendula, Celosia, Cosmos, Gomphrena, Phlox, Salvia, Snapdragon, Nicotiana, Sunflowers and Verbena bonariensis.
