Plan Your Cut-Flower Garden

Sun Exposure: Find a spot that gets at least six hours of direct sun per day to produce an abundance of blooms.

Seasonality:
Visit the nursery several times a year to find seasonal blooms so you'll always have bouquets.

Think Outside the Bud:
Don't just limit yourself to flowers—there are plenty of plants that will add texture, color and fragrance to you bouquets.

Maintenance:
To encourage maximum blooms, fertilize and deadhead (remove spent flowers) on a regular basis.

Bulk-Up On Bulbs:
Bulbs are ideal candidates for cut-flower gardens! Plant spring-blooming bulbs in fall, and summer-blooming bulbs in spring.
