Fifteen Sunflowers A Small Garden Flower Cutting Patch

Fifteen Sunflowers is the story of a small garden flower cutting patch designed to inspire you to grow your own flowers or cutting patch and have beautiful sweet scented blooms to fill your home with. There are many books and websites available on gardening and on how to grow flowers providing information for gardeners both amateur and professional. However there is very little information available on what to do with your flowers once you have grown them and cut them.  This is a simple step by step guide, based on my own experience and my passion for arranging English country garden flowers using quick and simple methods, illustrated with many photographs to inspire your creativity.

SEVEN GOOD REASONS TO GROW A FLOWER CUTTING PATCH

  • Having an abundance and variety of fresh, home grown flowers
  • Being able to cut your own flowers and arrange them immediately
  • Your flowers will have traveled a matter of feet from your cutting patch to container making them eco-friendly and more economical
  • Filling your home with the sweet fragrances and beautiful vibrant colours of country garden flowers
  • Freshly cut flowers, in general, have a longer vase life than flowers that have traveled half way around the world
  • Your flower cutting patch would benefit the bee, bird and butterfly population in your garden
  • Getting out into the fresh air and getting exercise helps to keep you fit and is also good therapy, so good for both mind and body
