Cutting Garden in a Box
We are sold out of plants for 2021. If you purchased plants, here are growing instructions: Planting Guide
Every spring we start hundreds of varieties of flowers and foliages from seed, including many special beauties that aren’t commonly found as starter plants. The box includes 15 plants and an e-packet of directions on how to plant, grow and harvest them. The plants come in Eco-grow pots made from recycled paper and make for easy planting because you can put the whole pot in the ground and it will decompose over time.
Varieties your box might include:
- Ammi Visnaga “Green Mist” – like Queen Anne’s Lace on steroids (in a good way)
- Ammobium Winged Everlasting – a darling flower fresh and great to dry
- Carnation “La France” – a pale pink carnation with a glorious clove-scent, worth growing for the fragrance alone
- Craspedia – Yellow drumsticks, a super trendy flower
- Clarkia Elegant Salmon – a Northwest native and long-lasting cut flower – did you say 2 weeks vaselife? Yes!
- Cosmos Double Click Cranberries or Violet – extra frilly cosmos that pump out blooms for months
- Daucus Carota “Purple Kisses” – Chocolate Queen Anne’s Lace
- Sweet William in Cherry and White – A classic, long lasting cut flower
- Dusty Miller “New Look” – terrific silver foliage
- Eryngium “White Glitter” – a cute thimble-sized thistle to add texture to arrangements
- Eucalyptus Gunni Silverdrop – this one gets big – it’ll be 5 feet by the end of the season – smells good too
- Feverfew Tetra White or Vegmo Sunny Ball – one of my favorite fillers
- Feathertop Grass – super useful and productive filler
- Scented Geranium “Attar of Roses” – elegant foliage with lovely scent
- Rudbeckia “Indian Summer” – Big, productive Black Eye-Susan
- Scabious Fama Blue or White – this one’s a perennial, will give you years of lovely blooms
- Snapdragon Chantilly in Purple, White or Salmon – an elegant snap in great colors
- Strawflower in Copper, Pomegranate, Apricot or White – a classic cut flower that’s great to dry
- Statice in Iceberg or Pink – another one that does dual duty as a fresh and a dried flower
- Zinnias – one of the easiest and most productive cuts, selection might include Benary’s Giant (4 inch blooms) or Oklahoma (2 inch blooms)
Hot season annual like Celosia, Gomphrena and Amaranth will be added to the selection after May 12.
