Happy New Year! It may be cold and frosty outside but don't despair - now is the perfect time to plan your perfect cutting garden for the coming year. Don't just focus on annual flowers, by using perennials, bulbs, tree blossom and shrubs, you can have something in flower year-round.
Here are just some of the flowers I harvested from my cutting garden during 2016 - something for every month of the year.
If you'd like to make 2017 the year when you grow and harvest your own flowers, follow me on social media (using the links top right). You'll gain inspiration and tips on what to sow, grow or harvest each month, or book one of my 'Grow Your Own Cut Flowers' workshops based here in Norfolk.
