Growing FROST TOLERANT Flowers: Planting Hardy Annual Flowers for Spring Cut Flower Garden

#Gardening #GrowingFlowers #CutFlowerGarden

This year, I’m planting hardy annual flowers for the spring cut flower garden. It will be important that I start with fall sowing for the best results.

I garden in Kentucky, on the line of zone 6b and zone 7.

I’m not an expert, I’m just some person with a garden. Thanks for visiting the Freshcutky organic gardening channel. This channel focuses on my journey, as I work to build my own cut flower farm. In the garden, I will answer some of the most common “gardening for beginners” type questions I get, including growing flowers from seed. Growing greens and planting beautiful organic food is something I’m really passionate about. Thank you for joining me as I learn to grow flowers, vegetables, and more.

Many ornamental flowers and cut flowers are TOXIC. ALWAYS do your own research and take responsibility for the plants that you introduce around your kids, pets, and everyone else. Use common sense when handling plant materials: wear gloves, always wash hands, avoid contact with face, etc. NEVER consume any plant which has not been positively identified with complete certainty to be safe and edible. Before planting anything, research to determine whether specific flowers are considered invasive where you live or if there are laws that apply to their planting in your area.

    You definitely have a green thumb…thanks for the over winter tips.

  2. Michelle M on October 2, 2020 at 12:01 am

    I want to make sure I understand what you mean by over winter the annuals. You are sowing the seeds into seedlings in the fall to transplant in Spring?

    Hi … could you do a video on growing carnations? I tried some this spring …started indiors and then transplanted to part sun (morning), zone 5. I have large mounds of leaves but no flowers. Thanks!

    Do you have any tips on using hollyhocks as cut flowers? I’ve never had much luck, the blooms wilt right away. Love your channel, thanks!πŸŒ·πŸŒ»πŸ’

    What is on the bottom of the tray when putting in soil, looks like paper and why?

  8. MaestroFriedrich on October 2, 2020 at 12:20 am

    Very detailed. I have had luck with lupine -Zone 8 Seattle. Godetia die in the winter but do great with an early spring sowing.

    Do you think it’d be ok to Winter Sow some of these in milk jugs now on Feb 10th? I’m in Arkansas 7a….or have I missed my chance for Spring Flowers this year?

  11. Amanda Caldas on October 2, 2020 at 12:29 am

    Okay, so I don’t know how I even got here, but I have a MILLION questions….I barely even have a garden, but over the last fourteen minutes I’ve decided to quit my job and devote myself to plants. First question, most obvious one, are you saying that once you’ve established your seedling in the fall you then transfer them into a unheated low tunnel/hoop house and they just stay dormant through the winter until spring? Sorry if it’s a ridiculous question, but I just stumbled into this video and I’m in love.

    Great video! This is the first year I am growing hardy annuals and you’ve helped me to select a few to try. Much love. 😍

  13. thisisatrium Floralandia on October 2, 2020 at 12:32 am

    What flowers do you direct sow inside the hoophouse and which do you seed start in the hoophouse then transplant (inside or outside) the hoophouse? Hope that makes sense.

    Where do you get your Bells of Ireland plugs from? (Just in case, I’d like a backup option.)

  15. graffic13 on October 2, 2020 at 12:37 am

    Suprised you don’t grow parsley for flowers …

  16. Joiemacarons on October 2, 2020 at 12:42 am

    Thanks for all the work you put into this video. It was a good one!

  17. Janice Faifua on October 2, 2020 at 12:42 am

    I thought this was good info. I am was unhappy about the number of commericials that broke into the content. You answered many of my questions!

  18. Bigfoot Buildings on October 2, 2020 at 12:43 am

    Great information! Thank you for sharing!

  19. Sarita Totlani on October 2, 2020 at 12:43 am

    Thank you so much girl for making this Video; I am about to start fall planting first time in my yard. But didn’t know anything. Thanks πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
