Sounds wonderful sgbrown. I like the idea of keepsake plants.
Yes they will, Vellur.
I like live ones, too. I have a tiny back yard in a rental, and grow a few flowers in window boxes. When it gets too cold, I will bring them in, boxes and all, and see if they will survive.
I have a hard time cutting flowers from my gardens also. When I want cut flowers for indoors, I usually buy a bouquet from the grocery store.
Try bulbs like lilies, tulips, daffodils, alstromeria, hyacinth, etc. They will store all they need to produce beautiful blooms each Spring or Summer to be enjoyed indoors or out even in the coldest climates.
I love to grow things. When I was back home in Maine, I'd have flowers everywhere, as my father had planted many varieties. There were lilacs, too, which I would cut and bring inside, as they smelled so nice. Still had the flowers, outside, though
Oh, dear. I thought the term "cut flowers" referred to flowers from the florist or that I had harvested from my gardens and brought inside.
It sure does! I personally like to have both, including plants inside, too.
Cut flowers only last for a week normally. Those I only use for special holidays. But I much prefer live ones. They will last much longer and always be there.
What a lovely idea, cat!
