Don't freak out! I'm a gardening nerd and when I can't be in the garden, I do things like plan my next gardening project on paper. Still, it's best to have a plan whether it's drawn out on paper or in your head.
Here are some things to consider when planning out your cutting garden:
- Pick out a spot in your yard that gets full sun.
- When you're planning out your cutting garden, pay attention to the way the sun hits the bed at certain times of the day, so your tallest flowers don't shade your shorter flowers.
You will see in my pictures, I'm using a raised bed for my cutting flowers. You really don't need a raised bed to have a cutting garden, any sunny space in your yard or garden will do. If you need help figuring out how to prepare your cutting garden for planting, when you've finished up here, pop over to the blog and read the article: Flower Gardening 101.
