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.

Globe Amaranth (Gomphrena globosa), Annual

It’s hard not to like globe amaranth. It’s a prolific bloomer that will last until frost. And in general, this plant isn’t fussy. It’ll tolerate various soils and moisture levels—basically a gardener’s dream.

Why we love it: The round blooms of globe amaranth add that fun element to an arrangement that not many flowers can. I personally love the globe look and the bright colors! Look for it in pink, purple and white.
