Cutting gardens are one of the most inspiring and useful of gardens. Rows of tulips, hyacinth and gladiolas provide beauty in large numbers. When they’re cut and arranged, they provide an indoor garden. These types of gardens are unusual to find in the typical garden. They’re traditionally found only on larger properties, in commercial gardens, or at wedding venues. But, if you have any kind of yard with a large sunny area, you can easily grow your own flowers for arrangements.

Perch Hill contains extensive gardens, providing fresh vegetables and flowers for cooking and floristry courses. It’s located in England. Did you know that our European friends spend three times as much as us Americans on flowers each year? Sad, isn’t it?! I say we band together and reverse that trend. One tulip bed at a time.
