Why Grow Your Own Cut Flowers?

There are so many reasons why I love to grow my own flowers.

Home-grown flowers have not traveled vast distances around the world, they haven't been sprayed with chemicals to make them last longer, they retain their natural characteristics and scent and they haven't used people in poor working conditions to pick them on vast flower farms. You can get varieties of flower that you can't get at the florist or supermarket, you can grow the flowers that you love, and that match your interior decor, all for a fraction of the cost of buying them.

Growing flowers from seed can be extremely rewarding and will keep you in touch with the seasons in your garden. The bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects visiting your flowers will love you for it and so will any friends or family who receive flowers from you.

And finally, once you start growing your own, you'll be hooked and will never look at flowers from the supermarket in quite the same way again.
