I have always tried to grow flowers in the garden that I can cut for the house ! But this year I also made a cutting bed especially for that purpose. Its been amazing having virtually free cut flowers all through the house. I say virtually because of course there is the seeds, compost, feed then manure for the beds, so there is a cost involved, but nothing like the cost it would be to buy flowers in abundance from the florist or market. I have been sent a lovely book to review written by Sarah Raven called 'Cutting garden journal' I will share it in a post soon as I have to read, digest, take photos for you and then give my personal review. In the meantime here is a couple of photos of bouquets I've picked for the house today.
