1. Choose a sunny location: Most flower bulbs and perennials require at least six hours of direct sunlight per day. As it is with almost everything  it is about location, location, location.

  2. Prepare the soil: Ensure that your soil is well-draining and rich in organic matter. Adding compost or well-rotted manure will also improve soil fertility and you will; benefit with stronger plants and more blooms.

  3. Choose the right bulbs and perennials: When selecting bulbs and perennials, choose plants that are well-suited to your climate. Some popular cut flower bulbs and perennials that thrive in Canadian climates include tulips, daffodils, lilies, peonies, and dahlias. Check our catalog for the cut-flower symbol. We made it super easy for you.

  4. Remember to plant your spring blooming bulbs like tulips, narcissus,hyacinth, alliums and other unusuals in the fall. You will be so grateful when you see them blooming in the spring. There are many great cut-flowers especially grown from bulbs that need the cold to develope a flower. Fall planting, spring blooming. Yes, it sounds confusing but it is well worth to remember.

  5. Water and fertilize: Water your newly planted bulbs and perennials regularly to ensure that they stay hydrated. Consider fertilizing your plants with a slow-release fertilizer to promote healthy growth.

  6. Cut and enjoy: Once your bulbs and perennials begin to bloom, feel free to cut them and bring them indoors to enjoy as cut flowers. With your bulb grown plants be sure to leave enough foliage on the plant to allow it to continue to grow and store energy for next year's blooms.Summer bulbs or tubers like dahlias are perfect to cut because the more you cut the more new buds it will give you.

By following these steps, you can create a beautiful and bountiful cut flower garden. And as a European trained florist, I can promise you, it is very rewarding to make your own flower bouquets.
