Trench Planting Tulips for Spring Cut Flowers

One of the biggest challenges of growing in a small space is finding the room to grow flower bulbs. While perennial bulbs, like daffodils, will require more thought.

The Last Tulips of the Season –

I know that I've been posting flower arrangements using tulips over the past month, but it appears that we've reached the end for the season. In all, I was able to extend my tulip season by almost one full month. Before we know it, it'll once be time again to plant bulbs. Anyway, let's take…

Growing Floret Ranunculus in the Little Cut Flower Garden

I've been growing ranunculus for years. In fact, it was one of the very first flowers that I wanted to grow after seeing pictures of the flowers in a seed catalog online. We've really come a long way in terms of corm availability since then. Last fall, I made a purchase from Floret of some…

Where’s the Foliage? Well, I Didn’t Plant Any…
