Tony’s Tips:

Snip flowers from your garden to enjoy them inside by making your own bouquet or arrangement.

Grow what you love!

Consider creating an area of your garden for fresh-cut flowers, with shrubs and plants like roses, hydrangeas, sunflowers, daylilies, etc.

Mix in ornamental grasses or large Hosta leaves for added interest.

Consider adding vegetable plants for different texture, color or fragrance.

Combine your own flowers with blooms from your grocery store floral department, farmer’s market or florist.

Get creative with containers – use an old watering can, your grandma’s bowl, or a vintage pitcher.
