Because today marks the first official day of spring and you’re probably itching to get your hands in the dirt, I wanted to share my top 6 favorite summer flowers to sow now. Even though dahlias would definitely be near the top of my list, this list is focused on flowers you can easily plant from seed, whereas dahlias are grown from tubers. While in most areas its still too risky to plant any heat loving flowers outside yet, it is the right time to start these seeds indoors. To find out the frost date in your area, just enter your zip code in the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
If you plant all 6 of these flowers (well, 2 of them are actually foliage) then you will be able to create a perfectly balanced bouquet straight from your own cutting garden.
