Keeping to the ‘Slight Edge‘ approach, continual study, expansion of personal experience and knowledge is vital as a designer. This January I’ve been asked to follow, and blog about, another great course from the My Garden School Team Growing a Cutting Garden. I experimented a good deal last year with a dedicated patch for growing all sorts of greenery and flowery-ness to provide bunches for the house and for friends with some success and some failures. Incorporating flowers to cut for the house into any garden scheme or dedicated patch to grow bunches of blooms, requires plenty of planning not just space allocation and seedling starting but assessing all the usual planting suspects, aspect, soil, light and so on. Picking the brains of an expert and being put through ones paces can only improve last years groundwork!
