Are Tulips Worth Growing In Your Cutting Garden


As an artisan florist and british flower grower fierceblooms discusses whether it is worthwhile growing tulips in her cutting garden.
Tulips. Are they worth growing?

An internal debate I have with myself every season is whether I should grow those beautiful Spring blooms.

After all, tulips are expensive, space occupying, work intensive and last two seasons at most.

Also, In the spring tulip season, good quality cut flowers can be supplied from local British flower growers like Smith And Munson to name but one.

So as an artisan florist and british flower grower, where do I stand on the questions of growing tulips versus utilising the space in the cutting garden for other flowers?

Watch through our video to find out where I am on this floral dilemma.


Fierceblooms is a environmentally sustainable floral business. Guarded by our ancient horse chestnut, our canalside cutting garden grows herbs and flowers while the wild edges hold magical medicinal plants here for much longer. Our hand crafted wild garden style wreaths and florals capture the seasonal moment and are created exclusively with British everlasting and fresh flowers.
