I love cut flowers, but I always buy them, to precious to take them from the garden, plus yours were a great bargain.
Yes it is a shame to take them from the garden.
Now that is what I call a bargain.
You know I love bargain's.
What a steal! I treated myself to some reduced Lillies yesterday. It's lovely to have some fresh flowers in the house. X
I love Lillies, it is nice to have fresh flowers in the house x
Bargain. I love carnations, too. I have loved being able to take so many daffs from the garden but I couldn't resist the tulips I bought the other day.
I haven't had any Tulips yet, x
Lovely nothing beats having fresh cut flowers in the home especially bargain ones, enjoy them, dee x
Your right Dee, x
They do last a long time & even longer if you take the side stems off and root them in some water. Pot them up & grow them in the garden. They do surprisingly well xx
Thanks Jo, what a brilliant tip I will try that xx
That's a great find, I love fresh flowers but they are so expensive. Im hoping to have a cutting patch this year, for the price of a few packets of seeds, hopefully lots of bunches! :) xxx
That is a brilliant idea, my outdoor veg patch which has not be very successful is going to be turned into one, it will be lovely to have a cutting patch.
I love carnations, they are so easy to root and pot on.
Hi Karen I have just got out the rooting powder and potted some up, fingers crossed.
Very pretty bargain. I seldom buy cut flowers, but often receive some and I always pick the carnations over very carefully as often there are side shoots that can be potted up to root to get some free plants for the garden.
I don't buy many fresh flowers, I have had a couple of bunches of daff's I buy some sometimes at the car boot, But I am going to have an area at by the greenhouse which I now have veg in, and that is going to be my area for cut flowers x
you are so right, carnations last for ages. Sometimes I chuck them out even though they are still going strong, because I get sick of the sight of them! You got a corking bargain there. Before I forget, the plates in the previous post are GORGEOUS. I love them. xx
Thankyou, I will be creating my own little area in the garden for cutting flowers so I can go out and snip a few when I like. I really love the plates, I love anything with a cherub xx
