Fast Growing Flowers for a Cutting Garden

Oftentimes you wish to have to plant fast growing plant life to create bouquets and flower preparations for upcoming celebrations, like an anniversary. Or probably you’ve a variety of garden to cover, and you want to see the results of your work rather quickly.

No matter the reason, you’ll love this handy record of rapid growing flowers you could plant on your garden at present, and before you understand it, you’ll be enjoying a gorgeous blast of color that’ll final all season long.

Mike Clayton from WESTERN GARDENS helped me mix beautiful spring flowers like pansies, prim rose, ranunculus and daffodils with edible plants like lettuce and sugar snap peas.  I love this idea!  I can’t wait to see the snap peas climb this fun yellow trellis (which also came from Western Gardens)!  I can also go out my front door, snip some lettuce and make a salad.  WHO KNEW, spring flowers and a salad mix! All of these plants are cold tolerant, which is important because spring weather is unpredictable.

1)    While you’re still in the nursery choosing plants, lay them out on the ground to get a better idea of how many plants you’ll need to cover the space in your bed.

2)    Clean out any old plant debris in your flower bed, and spread a 2″ layer of compost over the top of your existing soil.

3)    Lay out your plants in the flower bed before you start digging…adjust until it looks just how you want it.

4)    Gently tear the roots a little before you plant, so the roots will reach into the surrounding soil.  Water right away, as soon as your bed is planted.   Read More…
