Cutting Garden Ideas
This season plant a flower garden so you have fresh cut flowers! A garden is often dual purpose serving as a pollinator and an oh so very beautiful source of fresh flowers. Gardens continue to give generously throughout the growing season. I wanted to share with you how to get flowers from the garden so that you can better understand how easy it is to have fresh flowers all season long.
In the video below, sponsored by the Wave Petunia company, you can learn how to cut a flower from the garden and also see some of my favorite garden plants – Nicotiana ‘Nicki White’, Snapdragon ‘Rocket White’ and ‘Rocket Golden’, Zinnia ‘Zahara Fire’, and Zinnia ‘State Fair Mix’.
How to Cut Flowers in the Garden
When collecting flowers out of the cutting garden, be sure to snip first thing in the morning when moisture is available in the stem with a sharp tool. Cut at the intersection on the plant, then snip the stem at an angle. The more flowers you cut, the more flowers will produce.
Prepare the flowers for the vase by stripping the leaves off. Flower stems should be sliced again beneath running water at a sharp angle. They are now ready for a pretty vase and display in your home.
