Future Bouquets

July 12th, 2018

Typically, I grow cutting flowers from seed each year. This year my grow light space was limited, so I cut back on the number of annuals I started from seed. I stopped at a local farm stand last Friday and scored an entire flat of cut flower seedlings for $19. Into the potager they went, filling in the empty space with the possibility of future flowers for the table and for gifting.

I scored a lot of different colors of snapdragons, bachelor buttons, scabiosa, and some zinnias.

Do you grow flowers just for cutting? Which is your favorite?

Shop through these links and I get a few cents each time. It's not much, but it allows me to buy a new cookbook or new gardening book every couple months. I appreciate your support!
