My favorite flowers for a cutting garden! Easy to start, blooms all season long, great for cutting and filling your garden with color! Dahlia, zinnia, sunflower, daisy, and other hardy, low-maintenance plants with LOTS of flowers.
You also can call it globe amaranth, but whatever you call it, just plant it. It’s an annual and has these great circular flower heads (they dry well, if you’re into that). They love sun and come in lots of shades—orange, yellow, pink, white, and purple. Bonus: Just toss a handful of seeds into your garden—that’s it.
If you love making fresh flower arrangements, planting a cutting garden is the best way to ensure you always have an abundance of beautiful, homegrown flowers on hand. Full post here: http://www.longfield-gardens.com/article/Top-10-Flower-Bulbs-for-Cutting-Gardens
Cut Flower Tip: Poppies should be cut just before flowers open. You can prolong their life by cauterizing stems; just hold the tip of each stem in the flame of a candle for a few seconds, then place in water. Photo: Jan Mehlich | thisoldhouse.com | from 15 Fast-Growing Flowers for a Cutting Garden
