Types of Cut Flowers you Can Grow at Home
Growing flowers that you can cut straight from the garden is a wonderful hobby that will give you the opportunity to fill your home with beautiful blooms and scents. You can also give them as personalised presents for birthdays and special occasions. Here are some of the most common flowers to grow in your garden:
- Lilies. Oriental lilies are the most popular – choose these for an exotic flower display and to add a splash of colour and drama to a bouquet.
- Tulips. Add a few tulips to a bunch of flowers or create an entire bunch of tulips. Grow different coloured tulips to add interest to your bouquets.
- Sweet peas. Grow a variety of colours and add them to any bouquet to make it pretty and feminine.
- Roses. One of the most iconic cut flowers, choose roses in white or red to make a traditional posy of flowers. Give a single rose as a statement gift for a loved one.
