Bargain Blooms | Take advantage of seasonal sales at your local nursery, and stock up on popular plants. Keep them in their nursery pots, and display them in galvanized buckets on the porch until you are ready to plant them in your garden. Recreate this look with gerbera daisies, salvias, shasta daisies, daylilies, and sweet potato vines.
Backyard Blooms | These cheery blooms are easy to grow, require minimal care once established, and yield plenty of flowers for cutting. For quick arranging into a casual bouquet, like the one shown here, place large sunflowers in container first. Then add cockscombs, a great filler that provides texture. Tuck in as many zinnia blooms as possible and finish with small gomphrenas flowers to accent.
