Top 10 Flowers for a Cutting Garden

Indoor bouquets in mind? Here are our top 10 picks for flowers for a cutting garden.

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.

Speedwell

(Veronica spp., Zones 3 to 9)

If you want to make a big impact, put several spikes of Veronica speedwell together right in the middle of your flower arrangement. They’ll add height and interest. Look for long-blooming varieties.

Why we love it: I’m a sucker for the drama of Veronica speedwell. Those beautiful spikes are major eye-catchers that come in white, purple, pink or blue. They’ll bloom for a long time both inside and outside, but trust me: You’ll want to bring them in.
