Sorry for the audio issues, I’m working to fix the problem. Thanks.

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 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.


What is “@freshcutky”?

@freshcutky documents the pursuit of my goal of one day owning my own cut flower farm. Along the way, you’ll see random projects, cooking, and of course – growing stuff. I’m not an expert, and would never claim to be. There’s always more to learn – this is my journey. The purpose of my blog, and other social media accounts (including YouTube) is to share ideas. I do my best to offer information that is useful, but reliance on that information is strictly at your own risk and NOT a substitute for professional advice of any kind.

    You should get a popsicle stick and write the name on it and stick it in the soil when you first sow in your 2 liter, or you could write it on the inside of the top half of the 2 liter that way it’s not as exposed to the elements, then you’ll always know!

    Looks good! Thanks for teaching me how to do this. I’m headed out to check on my 60ish containers now. 😁 my first year and I’m loving it!

    They all look amazing, first year I’ve tried and everything is still so small here in southern Michigan.

    I wish I saw this video before I bought a slew of grow lights! Lol . 2017 was my first try at winter sowing I actually grew celery in water jugs AND kept them in a south window WITH grow lights. I had no idea what I was doing. I’ll be uploading a video this week. Well, Thanks for sharing. I subscribed, hit the bell and gave a thumbs up. Looking forward to future videos.

    The markers were off on my also…but I don’t have as many as you

  7. Shel Snyder on May 3, 2019 at 10:07 pm

    Awesome results! How many seeds did you sow per container?

  8. Sharon Moake on May 3, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    I am really excited to try this next year! Where do you get your seeds? Catalogs? Do you just buy them the year before and save them for the following year?

    Hey, you know what you would LOVE is the FB group–Fower Farmers. Unimaginable amounts of new information daily! It is the only reason I get on FB! 🙂 Enjoy! And thanks for all your videos 🙂

    At what temperature do you start planting the tender warm loving plants? Like tomatoes and peanuts

    I love winter sowing too!! It’s so easy and fun to do.

    Could the unknown seedlings be Impatiens? Loved the video. Nice to see them all healthy and lush.
