My New Cutting Garden

Two years ago I decided I wanted a cutting garden. I just loved the idea of walking out and gathering up some pretty blooms for in the house. I chose a variety of perennials that bloom at different times during the season and also add annuals for that extra pop of color all through the summer. My perennial varieties are:

A few varieties of day lilies, Irises, russian sage, sedum, hollyhocks and bee balm.

My annuals are always a few varieties of zinnias, especially the very tall ones with huge flowers. They can always be counted on for super summer color all season long.

Each year I tweak a little here and there experimenting with other flowering plants, that is the fun of this colorful garden. My only problem is that I have a hard time actually cutting them to bring inside!
