2022 CUTTING GARDEN PLANNER

Can you see your perfectly planned Cutting Garden in your mind? I bet it’s filled with a glorious array of blooms just waiting to be clipped and arranged in a beautiful vase.  But a really successful cutting garden requires careful planning, and that’s why using The Lifestyle Diva Shoppe’s 2022 Cutting Garden Planner can be so important. 

 

 FIRST, WHAT GARDEN DESIGN IS BEST FOR YOUR PROPERTY?

The Cutting Garden Planner contains three different garden plan designs from which to choose.  

You’ll want to walk your property to decide what location would be best suited for your cutting garden. Choose an area that receives plenty of sunshine and with lots of space for your plantings.

CHOOSING YOUR CUTTING GARDEN PLAN DESIGN

  • Raised-Bed Plan (45 plot design)
  • Horseshoe Plan ( 56 plot design)
  • Triple-Aisle Plan (60 plot design)

 

Each of our three Garden Plan Designs comes with a numbered plan diagram which will be the “key” to your planted cutting garden design.  Using the blank design sheet, you’ll enter each plant’s name in the amount of plots you’ll be planting. (Example: Triple Aisle Plan –  Zinneas will be planted in Section C/Plots 21-27)

I like to color-code my plans with colored pencils when planning my cutting garden.  This practice ensures that I have a good array of colors and the right amount of each type of flower I’m planting.

NAN’S TIP:  Don’t forget to plant some bouquet greenery like Baby’s Breath, ferns, myrtle or dusty miller to help fill out your arrangements and bouquets.

PLANTING SCHEDULER AND BLOOMING TRACKERS

You’ve decided what kinds of flowers and greenery you’ll be planting, that a great start.  Now it’s time to schedule the proper planting times for the different varieties you’ll be including in your garden plan.

The Lifestyle Diva Shoppe’s 2022 Cutting Garden Planner includes monthly calendars for April through August.  You won’t want to forget to plant a patch of Fall mums and sunflowers late in the season!

NAN’S TIP:  I like to make a note on my monthly calendars when my different flowers begin to bloom.  It gives me an idea of when to schedule cutting them during the growing season.  I then plug that info into my Weekly Cutting Scheduler.

BEAUTIFUL GARDENS NEED SOME “TLC” TO FLOURISH

After all the hard work you did planning, building and planting your fabulous Cutting Garden, you’ll want to maintain it too.  

Your Cutting Garden Planner contains all the maintenance pages you’ll need to keep your flowers blooming and your garden in peak condition.  

  • Flower Bed Maintenance Schedule
  • Cutting Garden Master To-Do List
  • Weekly Cutting Schedule (undated)
  • Garden Journal Pages for notes, planning, thoughts, etc.

 

You’ll want to print out several copies of each page in this section to last the whole growing season.  I actually print out 20 Garden Journal Pages so I have one page for each week.  That how the planner works best for me!
