The Cutting Garden

June 18, 2014

When my good friend Lou, a gardener by trade, asked me to teach her how to make a hand tied bouquet, how could I possibly resists -  she has the most amazing cutting garden of flowers! 

 

It was a warm sunny day when Lou arrived, perfect for playing in the garden with Lou’s home grown flowers, accompanied by a slice of homemade fruit cake and glass of iced tea. 

 

We used a variety of flowers to create our designs, naming but a few:

 

Nigella

Corn Flowers

Lupins

Ox Eye Daises

Stocks

Roses (David Austin: Queen of Sweden, Shropshire Lad, William and Kate)

Astrantia

Ammi Majus

Verbena

Gypsophilia Covent Garden

Quaking Grass

Scabiosa

Nepeta Six Hills Giant

Hydrangea

Cosmo

Poppies

Salvia Hot Lips

 

When using home grown flowers in designs, it is best to cut them early (when the temperature is cooler) and condition their stems, stripping off all excess foliage that could cause bacteria build up in the water. Place them into fresh cold water and let them have a really good drink before using.

 

Home grown flowers may not last as long as commercial grown flowers, but it is by far, much more rewarding to have them sat in a vase, knowing that you grew and nurtured them from scratch with your bare hands! 

 

Happy seeding! xx
