Decorate your home with vases of beautiful blooms all summer long.
The key to growing a productive cutting garden is planting a combination of annuals, perennials, and flowering bulbs. This way you will always have new flowers coming into bloom.
Every flower farmer knows that summer-blooming bulbs are the backbone of a cutting garden. Bulbs such as lilies, dahlias, and gladiolus, are planted in spring, start blooming in midsummer and continue flowering right through the fall — well after other plants have faded in the heat of late summer.
