If a cutting garden is in your plans this season, consider the following flowers for beautiful, colorful displays indoors or out. Dahlias in the medium size forms, zinnias, sunflowers, cosmos for their light and airy appeal, ammi, yarrow is adored by pollinators and blooms beautifully in the garden as well as being a long-lasting cut flower, Shasta daisy is a favorite in the cottage garden, nigella and of course, roses and herbs all offer both beauty and fragrance in a bouquet.
Watch for signs of early spring bulbs.
Begin a garden journal. Keep track of gardening plans and purchases. Later add a section for what’s blooming and when.
MCH specialist Nicholas at Evergreen Tree & Landscape recommends Zinnia elegans when it comes to cut flowers. They last for over a week in bouquets, and are equally durable in the cultivated garden bed. Zinnias are cheery, mesmerizing flowers!
