    Default Cut Flowers 2018

    Yep, I have decided to inflict you with another year of flowers. My challenge this time is to improve my photography skills. So with this in mind I will aim to take pics once a month of flowers both in the cutting patch and of finished arrangements.

    Please feel free to set your own challenges or jump in at any point when you feel like it.

    Looking forward to reading your posts, I enjoyed your last thread. I am starting to grow more flowers this year. Have you any tips on how to get sea holly to germinate not having much luck. Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to the vine. My tips on sea holly - cold, patience and don't buy them from T+M. I still haven't faired very well beyond that though. Feel free to add piccies. The thread is for sharing, helping and encouraging

    The cutting patch (the bit I have done)

    Lots of life in the GH inc. slugs

    Then some arrangements, as the girls were out picking (LH - dried grasses, allium heads and snow drops. RH - Eucalyptus, rosemary, winter honeysuckle and snowdrops)

    Good gracious Flowergrower, where do you live? My daffs are not even showing above ground yet. Could you be in deepest, darkest Wales? I know VC has had a daff or two already.

    And a warm welcome to the vine on this cold February day
    Endless wonder.

    Although I've sworn off buying veg seeds this year, I can't resist buying some seeds, so last week I bought agastache rupestris "Apache Sunset" (what a fabulous name) which is HP, and agastache pallidiflora "Rose Mint", HHA, both of which are good for bees and I'm hoping will look graceful in a vase with other flowers. Nice long flowering period too.
