Homegrown Wedding Flowers
Last October I came to this forum to ask advice about helping a dear friend of mine by growing some flowers for her tables at her wedding in June 2015.
Well - as a complete novice gardener, I was quite proud of myself with my little PVC greenhouse and seedlings coming along nicely (gyp, sweetpeas, candytuft, larkspur, cornflowers, love in the mist).
Then the winds came!!!
My little greenhouse got knocked over and the seedlings scattered everywhere....so I tried to salvage what I could....then it happened again (even after anchoring it down with tent pegs) and with more force - the cover was shred to pieces and one of the metal legs was misshaped!
After a month or two of me calming down about that (and being super busy with Christmas/baby/work/starting a home business) I have decided to start again.
This time,I am not using the greenhouse (not got a replacement cover for it anyway. But I have a few windowsill trays.
I have started (today) with sweetpeas and gyp (bride has now decided that she would only like white flowers.
Any tips? Any other (white) flower suggestions that are easy for a newbie? (that flower in June) Any plug plants I should be on the look out for and when should I buy those?
Thanks for sticking with my long-winded post!!
