Cut flowers aren’t just my business, they are my passion. These five plants make excellent cut flowers – they are prolific and easy to grow. Cutting flowers grown in your garden connects us to the seasons and the joy of creating arrangements from blooms you’ve grown yourself cannot be overstated.


Narcissus ‘Bridal Crown’

The cheerful blooms of Narcissus ‘Bridal Crown’ are a sign of spring arriving. Just a few stems can fill a room with scent and I decorate my home with these cream, multi-headed blooms in early spring to enjoy their fragrant perfume. They’re easy to grow and you can plant bulbs in pots in succession throughout autumn and into early winter. They can also be brought inside for forcing into flower to enjoy a little earlier than bulbs planted in the garden.
