Looking for ways to prolong the life of your fresh cut flowers? Learn how to keep fresh flowers longer in a few simple steps.
Whether you grow your own flowers to cut or pick them up at the local market, there’s nothing quite like a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers.
While I’ve been growing beautiful flower gardens throughout my landscape for over 20 years, I was not cutting much of the blooms to enjoy indoors.
Isn’t that crazy?
I chose not to cut a lot because I grow several different plant varieties on half an acre of property.
Which might sound like a lot, but because there are so many different plants, I enjoy them more IN my garden rather than inside my home.
But I’m changing my tune.
To break away from that line of thinking, I decided to focus more on growing flowers that are better for cutting.
Last year, I started growing dahlias.
Oh the dahlias.
They really stole my heart!
There are so many different unique varieties and they make a great late summer/early fall addition to the cottage garden.
