Grow A Cut Flower Garden 

do you want to grow flowers this year?

You should try starting a cut flower garden! There is nothing better than going outside and cutting a fresh bouquet

Find an area with full sun. 6 hours or more a day  Raised garden beds are perfect for a cut flower garden.  With even 1 bed you can grow lots of flowers!

healthy start

Fill your beds with a nutrient rich mix of composted materials, quality garden soil blend, and an organic fertilizer made for flowers.

seed starting

I tried starting seeds indoors last year. I had great results for my first time! It wasn't very just need lights and seeds..and a little luck!

Most tender annual seeds need to be planted after danger of frost in your area has past.  You can plant zinnia, strawflower, poppy, & cosmos seeds directly in the garden.


A cut garden must is dahlias! These late season bloomers are spectacular!! They grow from tubers that you plant in the Spring


A little more than a month from seed to blooms!! Zinnias are so much fun to grow!!


another cut flower garden must-have

Snapdragons are an unusual looking flower and you can find seeds in all kinds of colors & heights. Very easy to grow!

In just a few months my cut flower garden went from this...
