Inniswood Senior Environmental Educator
As you walk through Inniswood Metro Gardens, you’ll notice stunning displays of blooming flowers and vibrant plants. Nestled near the Herb Garden, you’ll see the Cutting Garden, an area devoted to cut flowers. Inniswood chooses the plants for this garden early in the year.
At Inniswood, a team of staff and volunteers work to design, create, maintain and harvest the plants in the Cutting Garden. Our talented volunteers create fresh flower arrangements for the Innis House on a weekly basis.
You can harvest blooms and foliage from your garden most any time throughout the season. For cut-flower arrangements, annual plants such as coleus, impatiens and begonias all look beautiful in a vase. Perennial plants like hostas and black-eyed Susans can add to the beauty. Even woodier shrubs, like boxwood, can be show-stopping in a container.
The best thing about gardening is being able to share it with others. An easy way to do that is to gift your blooms! If someone is sick, bring them flowers. If a new neighbor has just moved in, bring them flowers. If you need a gift for a host or hostess, bring them flowers. It’s a simple, inexpensive and wonderful way to connect with someone.
