grow it yourself

Now is the perfect time to plan and plant a cut flower garden for this year. It's great to be able to walk right outside and cut fresh flowers!
Plan your cut flower garden in an area with 6+ hours of sun. Raised beds are great for growing flowers. Even with 1 or 2, you can grow lots of flowers.
Most annual flowers need to be planted after the danger of frost in your area. Check your USDA grow zone map to find out yours.
Flower Choice for Beginners:
Zinnias are the perfect starter flower for newbies! Plant seeds and in a month or so you will have flowers for the rest of the summer.
Dahlias are the star of the late season garden. These are tubers that you plant. You can find them at your nursery or home improvement store.
So buy a few packets of flower seeds, find a sunny spot and get planting!
