These details are critical in making a good, solid plan that will reward you with a successful, flower-filled season. So, before we dig into the nitty gritty how-to posts, I want you to take a little time and answer these six important questions. From here planning will be so much easier. How much space do you have to work with? Almost all of the flower varieties we offer in the Floret Shop prefer full sun, so try to find a location that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight a day.
I have a 2-acre field map, with every single bed and hoophouse drawn out. This really, really helps me stay in touch with the actual space I have to fill. Factors like where you live and how long your growing season lasts will dictate what varieties will grow and thrive in your area.
For instance, one of my farming friends in northern Vermont only has 90 frost-free days during which to grow flowers! So they stick to cool weather-lovers that are fast to flower, and anything heat-loving and tender must be grown in a hoophouse.
Another grower friend is gardening in the high desert. Spring lasts just a few short weeks, essentially jumping from winter right to summer.
Cool weather-lovers like sweet peas and honeywort must be grown under shade cloth, otherwise the high temps and high light will fry their tender growth. So things that thrive outside for most gardeners, like basil, tomatoes, peppers, and cockscomb must be tucked into a hoophouse for us, otherwise they never fully ripen.
How much time and energy do you have to devote to this project? This is the question I hate to answer the most! If you work a full-time job or have to travel to your cutting garden, or your days are filled with wrangling little people, beware of biting off more than you can chew.
When I first started growing flowers I was also a young mom. The majority of my days were filled with keeping a very inquisitive preschooler occupied and her wild toddler brother out of trouble. As my passion for flowers grew, so did my frustration with how little time I actually had to devote to growing them.
As time went on I found some great ways to manage the workload and eventually keep up, which I will share with you soon. But what would have helped me more than anything back then was to take it a little easier.
How much money can you invest in your garden this season? Depending on the size of the garden you have, a pretty small investment in seeds and compost can reward you with an incredible abundance of flowers and foliage just a few months down the road. But in the chase for more income, we failed to account for just how much money was required to get a new 2-acre field set up and in working order.
With the land already rented and ready to cultivate, we naively skipped the most important steps to growing great flowers feeding the soil and providing steady water and instead just threw thousands of small seedlings in the ground. That year almost did us in! What are your floral needs? Whether you want to grow truckloads of flowers for mixed bouquets, or interesting ingredients to supplement your floral design business during the wedding season, or just have fresh flowers for your home, your needs should define what varieties you choose and how many plants you ultimately grow.
Lastly, WHY are you growing cut flowers? I know this probably seems like a silly question, but during the height of summer, when the mosquitoes are thick, and the flowers are blooming faster than you can cut them, remembering this one simple thing will help to keep things in perspective.
For me, growing flowers helps me to be more centered and present in the moment. I have a tendency to live in the future.Flowers pull me out of my head and into the right here and right now.
I also LOVE to share the beauty and magic of flowers with other people. Nothing brings me more joy than handing someone a bundle of blooms. What you are struggling with, what questions do you still have, and are there any tricks or resources you love that you could share with other readers?
If you find this information is helpful, I would love it if you would share it with your friends. Hi My name is Wendy. I have waitressed, been a machinist, worked in a factory and been a plumber. With the sale of our plumbing business and our home I have the opportunity to follow my passion of growing flowers.
I discovered dahlias last year when I received some free tubers. I bought tubers last winter and now I have about dahlias, and a garden worth zinnias and multiple perennials. I discovered your show on magnolia network and your story really empowered me to go forward with my passion. So far with your mini courses I have learned alot. Have you only sold cut flowers and seeds or have you also sold potted plants for planters?
Thank you for sharing your story. I just found your website and I am overwhelmed with the amount of information available. Thank you so much. I live on a small farm with about 18 acres of pasture and 18 tillable acres plus a couple of acres for yard and outbuildings. I have a number of flower beds in the yard and would eventually like to turn part of the acreage currently involved in grain farming into more flowering or landscaping plants now that the kids are grown and I have more time.
Hi , My name is Twanna , I watched your Show and loved it!! I have gardened all of my life. It is my peaceful place. I am 62 and hope to retire in 3 years. I have 8x 15 Hoop house. And several good size flower beds.
I would like to sell flowers and seeds at the Farmers Market to supplement my retirement income. And I love to share with my Friends and Neighbors. I may add another Acre next year. Any thoughts or Ideas are greatly appreciated. I am a flower lover my husband is too. We live in Lancaster TX. And summers here are hot and winters well gets supper cold. But I love flowers that come back every year I would also love to have some cut flowers.
But I love what you do and thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. I have a large back yard and part of it is in a sunny area. I live in Tyler county Texas , we have a lot of summer. I want something that will come back each summer. I am disabled and have a lot of time to take care of flowers. Thank you for bringing so much beauty to the world. But am now retired and trying to turn my yard into a park…per my husband. LOL Luckily he loves it all as much as I do…even though he prefers his rider mower to pulling weeds or deadheading plants.
I have more room in the back around a pool but with restrictions along the outside border due to power lines and beautiful trees. So, that being said, I want beautiful perennials and, living in SC, we have heat and sun and not long winters.
I want to make a pathway of beauty around the yard and will be studying your site for ideas and direction. Thank you for anything you may want to share re ideas or what I should specifically study to make this dream come true. God Bless and continued blessings to you, your family and Floret.
I am retired but spend around 6hrs a day as a Carer for my parents. I live in the uk and have always been a gardener ,it is my bit of solace. Along with my daughter we have turned our gardens over to a small flower farm which has given us both a new focus. We have avidly read all your posts and advice which have given us a lot of inspiration.
Many thanks and happy gardening. Did your book just get me excited to take on the day to day of growing flowers. I may have gotten addicted. Honestly I am not sure if my flowers will take off, but I have 2 young children and the garden bring me some extra fun.
I love learning about each flower and they just feel so interesting. I have always liked to create art and I am a photographer. I think that God is pulling me to stop pushing in one direction and start running in this one. It all started falling in place, so I need to see where it takes me. Hugs and Thanks for this much needed inspiration and joy. My grandma loved to receive flowers bouquets, my mum loves gardening and roses especially. With my husband a forestry engineer we recently bought a country house and a piece of land 1.
I will keep on reading and learning. Thank you for your time and sharing such useful information! In some parts of my yard I have shade.This year I bought a little Greenhouse and 12 seed starter trays 72 seed pur tray I planted seeds in my Greenhouse on January 28th and to my surprise everything Groove beautifully I set a heater in the greenhouse and kept the temperature around 60 and when it got warmer I would put a fan in my Greenhouse to keep the temperatures cool and I had great success with that I already had a lot of knowledge about flowers and different types of plants and I have found my love.
The first time I heard about you was on Garden answers she has the style I love. You have such an inspiring story and lovely farm!

Growing them takes time and a good amount of effort but the rewards can be plentiful if the plants are kept well fed and watered. If sown between mid-February and March plants should have full trusses by now that are ready to be ripened, tomatoes love the sunshine so make sure they are placed in a sunny spot and keep them well watered. In addition to watering, a good nutrition plan is needed.Tomatoes are the most nutrient dependent of all the fruits and vegetables and with the fruits ripening between the end of July and mid August now is great time to give the plants a boost using an organic feed.
