INSPIRATION THURSDAY, A CUTTING GARDEN

Photo Courtesy of Gardenweb.com
One of my "gardening dreams" at the farm is to have a cutting garden.
You can't beat having access to fresh flowers 24/7.

When I saw this online, I immediately thought this was so awesome.  I can't really say ours would be this big, not sure I have that in me, ha.  But I DO love the part right in the foreground, the two long beds, with the gravel path in between, and a climbing fence on once side.  Very pretty and a great design.
It makes it convenient to go grab some fresh flowers.

Today is my blog day off, so see you back here tomorrow!
Have a good day!

  3. I love it! I wish I had space and time for all of that. I like your idea of the two closest beds, I would like to do something like that in my front garden.

    2. Yeah, two beds like that with a path down the middle would be nice. I think that's what appealed to me when I saw it, it seemed "orderly", ha.

  4. I have found that a smaller cuting garden works great for me. I got overwhelmed with a really large ones and I recommend zinnia and sunflowers just becaus ei have found them easy to grow.


    John G. thanks for the link--very nice.

    1. Yep, I'm thinking smaller is better too, ha. My grandmother used to grow Zinnia's, I love them, they are so pretty. Haven't ever tried sunflowers, might have to do that sometime.

  7. I want a cutting garden too!! We have some beautiful peonies and poppies, but I'd like to plant a whole bunch of dinner-plate dahlias too. And sunflowers of all colors and sizes! :)

    1. There is just something magical about a cutting garden isn't it? Not to mention actually using it as it is and putting fresh flowers all over your house. Oh, we love Dahlia's so pretty.
