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.


We're an environmentally conscious local floral business rooted in our wild Cheshire canal side cut flower garden, inspiring our weddings, workshops and creative digital online classes. If sustainability matters to you, if you care that floral creations are as kind to the environment as they are beautiful, then I am a kindred spirit.

Floral Classes For 2022

We are plotting and planning, exploring and investigating floral classes for 2022.

Always, our fierce focus is to share how we create our signature "Wild garden Style" floral designs using local, scented, seasonal and sustainable flowers.

In fact. we only ever use local, garden grown (in our case) British flowers. Our desire is in every class to inspire you to create your own planet friendly, environmentally conscious floral designs using ingredients that reflect your season, your flora and your locale.

Rather than a constraint, we believe creating with your own seasonal garden grown flowers encourages you to make floral art that truly embodies your own unique floral signature.

2022 is our 3rd season of live online classes.  We look forward to continued conversations with sustainable floral enthusiasts from the far flung Scotland Highlands, down to Devon and Cornwall, across to Wales, and way beyond to North America, Australia, New Zealand.
