I think this is a great idea!  I would have loved to have done this but I have a black thumb ๐Ÿ™ 

Please post the progress with these, I think that alot of Hive members and future hive members might be helped from what you learn in the process, the good and the bad.

You are so brave ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree with @tksjewelry: and what a great bonding experience for you and Mother-In-Law. You already have a backup plan, so I say go for it!

I actually wanted to do this, but then we decided on a destination wedding.

I would just have Sams as a back-up plan for if something goes wrong, but go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚

The reason I picked peonies is that my mom has tons of bushes of them in her yard that are GORGEOUS!!  I plan on using them if they come up at the right time.  Will check the timing of their flowers this year, but I also know that there will prob not be enough as I am doing ALL of my flowers i.e. bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, centerpieces, etc.  If they come up at the right time this year I will plan on ordering a 100 stems versus 200.  So maybe order some from Sam’s and use some from the ones you grow.  Definitely ask for help on how to propagate the flowers.  The nearby farm will be a great resource for you.  Good luck!

I am for sure!

I see it pointless to buy flowers when I live on a farm LOL So far, it’s sunflower that I’m growing!

Yep, I am!  I’m doing my own flowers regardless, but I don’t have to order them from the local wholesale florist until 2 weeks prior to the wedding.  So I’m not going to rely on the flowers I’m growing, any that turn out will just be a bonus.  I’m growing dahlias and a bunch of other things I can’t remember ๐Ÿ™‚
