Four things for every bride to be to remember if she grows the wedding Flowers

Brides to be may save money if they grow their own flowers for bouquets, boutonnieres, etc., but before you set out to harvest those blooms, here are four important tips any bride to be needs to know.

 

Be familiar with the type – If you decide to harvest wildflowers for your wedding, every bride to be should choose flowers that are native to the area. It is better to plant wildflowers from seed that are formulated for your region. If a bride to be harvests wildflowers that are not native to the area and are considered true wildflowers that are not purchased from a garden seed store, you could be doing more harm than good for the flowers – disrupting their growing times and causing bald patches when you harvest the day before your wedding.

 

Bring life to winter – There is no rule against anyone’s wish to have vibrant spring flowers at your winter wedding. If you want spring flowers, do a little force growing. Plant your seeds in fall, in the planters you want to use. Then, place them in a cool area that is between 35 and 45 degrees for eight to 12 weeks. Roughly four weeks before the ceremony, bring the plants to grow in a warm area to grow. This can make a bride to be happy, with a wedding of rainbow color.

 

Plan your flower picking – As a bride to be, you may need blooms for your bouquet and wedding party, but no one wants to deplete their flower garden of all their beautiful blooms. Work with your flowers, by planting flowers that will release a number of blooms, such as the Sweet Pea. These are hardy flowers that can produce a large number of flowers, if cut correctly before the ceremony. Pick on Monday and there should be plenty of blooms again by Thursday for any bride to be’s wedding.

 

Use great growers – Any bride to be, who grow their flowers, will learn which flower varieties will yield a greater number of flower blossoms. For example, a single cornflower produces enough flowers for three weddings, if you keep cutting the plant. Do not forget to feed it, too! Otherwise, the hard work put into your flower growing may be wasted and a bride to be will not have the flowers she wants at her wedding.
