Last year, I didn’t think too much about floral in my garden. But between gorgeously-colored strains of basil, an existing hibiscus, and the few flower seeds I did toss in the ground, I had fresh-cut decor all over my home throughout nearly the entire year.
This growing season, I didn’t fool around. Spring bulbs went into the ground last December and alluring floral seeds were ordered; my planting strategy factored in plenty of cuttable color, frill, and scent.
Here’s what’s great about cultivating your own floral decor:
① Your own fresh-cut flowers last much longer than store-bought. Without travel or preservation methods, lifespan is greatly increased.
② Budget! Depending on variety, a pack of 10-800 seeds is just a few dollars.
③ Ease of availability. Arrangement looking a little droopy? No problem, immediate replacement is available from your yard!
