Top 10 Flowers for a Cutting Garden

Plant these flowers in your cutting garden, and enjoy fresh bouquets all season long!

I recently became accustomed to having fresh flowers on my dining room table. It started off as a little treat now and then, but I kept feeling as if something was missing whenever my favorite green vase was bare. Ten dollars at the farmers market here and $14 at the grocery store there can really add up.

My solution for a constant (and expensive!) desire for fresh blossoms indoors? A cutting garden! It’s so obvious now that I’m kicking myself for not thinking of it sooner. I’m telling you about it now so you can get your plans in the works for your very own cutting garden this year. I chose 10 of my favorites to complete this list, but grow what you like and enjoy fresh bouquets in your house all summer.

Cosmos (Cosmos spp.), Annual

Cosmos is a garden favorite that is known to attract birds and butterflies, but you don’t want to give this one completely to your winged friends. Cut cosmos and take it inside and enjoy it yourself.

Why we love it: If it’s versatility you’re after, cosmos is it. Tons of varieties and colors are available. Find one that will complement the rest of the blooms in your cutting garden.
