Wow…that is so cool! I definitely would kill all of the flowers by accident if I tried…but that is such a great idea!

I’m not but that’s an awesome idea!! I like doing projects like that but I didn’t with flowers 🙁 You have to show us pictures of the growing process & the when they’re finished!!!

I have actually been thinking about doing this but am not a flower expert!

My wedding is in June… do you have advice on what flowers to grow, how to do it (pot or ground?), and if they’ll be in bloom then!?

When’s your wedding? And what flowers are you growing?

Thanks!

Ooh that’s great idea!  Too bad my first test for growing basil failed miserably.  I don’t know if I know how to keep a plant alive!  Would love to see how it comes out.

I’d love to know what you are growing! I’m a gardener myself and considered at one time DIYing some of my centerpieces with large white hydrangeas, or snowballs. But, it was suggested to me that using flowers from a home cut garden is a bit risky because you never know what kinds of bugs are crawling on them when you set them on the tables!! Any plans to get rid of the bugs or check for them before using them in arrangements? I know you can soak peonys in water to get rid of the ants, but I don’t know about any other flowers.

I plan on growing some lavander colored Lisianthus flowers. If it goes well, I am going to have some teen-aged cousins hand one to each woman at my ceremony. If it goes really well, I’ll fill vases with them too.

I do plan on having a florist handle most of my needs, though.
