Cut Flower Bed Update

 

2014-03-13 11 55 35

Back in March I posted about 2 unused raised beds in a client’s garden that this year I was going to use to create a Square Foot (ish) veg bed & a cut flower bed.

Ta-Da!
This is the cut flower bed.

Most of what you see above are spring-sown seeds. There are also 2 wigwams of sweet peas & at the back are dahlias.

Dahlia ‘Arabian Night’ & Dahlia ‘My Love’

Cornflower ‘Blue Ball’

Cosmos

calendula

Calendula ‘Indian Prince’ & the white Gypsophila ‘Covent Garden’.

Ammi Majus

Despite these being spring-sown seeds, they’ve been a huge success and have provided my client with an endless selection of posies for the home.
The whole lot came from the Autumn collection from Higgledy Garden.

This is incredible!! I rarely cut my flowers but would love to have these to snip away at. Amazing that they are all seed grown. Hooray for you! Excellent job!

That’s lovely, beds like that are great if you have the space for it. I only got space left on my roof – a bit cumbersome to get up and down to weed and water :-)

Every time I plant extras in the spring for cutting in the summer, I can't bring myself to cut them! They last longer in the garden, and I get used to seeing them there.
