The Cut Flower Patch Year 2023

Updated: Jul 25, 2023


After many happy hours browsing through this year's seed catalogues, consulting my cut flower reference books and doing a little online research, I've chosen all the seeds for the 2023 Cut Flower Patch seed boxes.


This year is a little different, instead of monthly seed boxes containing 5 packets of seeds in each box, this year our boxes will be produced every two months and will contain 6 packets of seeds. There will again be a break in June and July, as there is little that can be sown at that time of year. So essentially instead of 50 packets of seeds each year there will be 30 packets in 2023.


We've made these changes because we have so many cut flower patch growers telling us that they are overwhelmed with seeds and don't have the space to sow, nurture and plant out so many varieties. Like so many people I don't like waste and it was starting to be a cause for concern that we were supplying seeds that were unlikely, through no fault of our customers, to ever see the light of day.


I am confident that reducing the number of flowers this year will not have an impact on our cut flower patches. 30 varieties is more than enough to ensure all the essentials are covered along with something a little different. As you will see from the selection below we have a fabulous mix of colour, shape and heights, as well as plenty of flowers that attract pollinators. I've also made sure that we'll have a long cutting season from May through to October.


We're looking forward to the year ahead and to sowing and growing lots of fabulous flowers for cutting all through the spring, summer and autumn.
