I have to admit that when I first decided to grow cut flowers, I got rather carried away with the ‘deciding what to grow’ and ‘buying seeds and bulbs’ parts of the process. It took me until January to realise that I hadn’t actually decided where I should plant them! I knew roughly where I wanted it all to happen, but as I started to read up on it, I realised how many additional factors I needed to take into account. My original plan of sowing some seeds and hoping for the best was rapidly unravelling. At this point, panic set in and I nearly talked myself out of doing it, but everybody has to start somewhere and you don’t learn until you give these things a go.
