Thanks for visiting the Freshcutky organic gardening channel. In the garden, I will answer some of the most common “gardening for beginners” type questions I get, including growing flowers from seed. Growing greens, growing flowers, and planting beautiful organic food is something I’m really passionate about. Thank you for joining me as I learn to grow flowers, cut flowers, vegetables, and much more. Freshcutky youtube channel and related media are for entertainment purposes only.

Many ornamental flowers and cut flowers are TOXIC. ALWAYS do your own research and take responsibility for the plants that you introduce around your kids, pets, and everyone else. Use common sense when handling plant materials: wear gloves, always wash hands, avoid contact with face, etc. NEVER consume any plant which has not been positively identified with complete certainty to be safe and edible. Before planting anything, research to determine whether specific flowers are considered invasive where you live or if there are laws that apply to their planting in your area.


What is “@freshcutky”?

@freshcutky documents the pursuit of my goal of one day owning my own cut flower farm. Along the way, you’ll see random projects, cooking, and of course – growing stuff. I’m not an expert, and would never claim to be. There’s always more to learn – this is my journey. The purpose of my blog, and other social media accounts (including YouTube) is to share ideas. I do my best to offer information that is useful, but reliance on that information is strictly at your own risk and NOT a substitute for professional advice of any kind.

    I wish my garden weeds wildflower

  2. Garden Things-Jill on November 12, 2021 at 9:36 am

    So how do you get the pests off your flowers in order to deliver them?

  3. Edwin Martin on November 12, 2021 at 9:39 am

    Is it always true that the red-pink-white cosmos variety is rarely more than 50% germination? In my experience over last several years is that the yellow-orange variety of cosmos is the fastest, (or worst depending on your view) reseeder in the world! Zinnia and cosmos seeds are kinda similar in size but never get good germ on the pink cosmos while zinnias and yellow-orange cosmos are 90%+ germ.

    Great info! Thanks

    Yours were some of the first videos I watched when I first started gardening two years ago. I started simple like you suggested and have branched out to lots of different things and currently focus on native plants. I still love and appreciate your videos! Thank you for sharing your knowledge!!

  6. Natalya Dubinina on November 12, 2021 at 9:43 am

    I absolutely love how you take pictures of your beautiful flowers. If I ever start a flower magazine, I would love to put your work on the cover And promote your work !

  7. Delightful Souvenirs on November 12, 2021 at 9:46 am

    Great information here. All your flowers are looking gorgeous.

  8. Judy Middleswart on November 12, 2021 at 9:48 am

    I love how you explain things!!

  9. FitGardenMom on November 12, 2021 at 9:48 am

    I always buy more zinnia seeds after watching your videos! Thank you for the info! Im growing so much more this year than last and sharing it on my channel as well 🙂

  10. Nancy Krehbiel on November 12, 2021 at 9:50 am

    I fell in love with basil last year–so glad you included it! I am growing around 10 varieties of it this year!

  11. Cloudberry Flowers - Flower Farm and Garden on November 12, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Really enjoyed your video. Loving those double delight sunflowers. I am looking forward to growing more sunflowers this year. Zinnias I just haven’t managed to grow here in Scotland outdoors. I would love to though as they are a fantastic cut flower!

  12. Sue Krebs on November 12, 2021 at 9:51 am

    Another snowy day in Wisconsin so seeing colorful garden flowers is a special treat. 22 winter sowing jugs under the snow so far. So much to look forward to in the garden this spring and summer. Thanks for another enjoyable video!

  13. Bayou Lawn Specialist on November 12, 2021 at 9:52 am

    Your channel is awesome. Keep the zinnia advice coming. Experimenting with growing them in a large new greenhouse for the first time.

  15. Cynthia Parrish on November 12, 2021 at 9:55 am

    How close do you sow your zinnias? I’m I. Georgia 7B and it’s so hot and humid. I don’t want to grow them so close that they don’t get good air flow. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge of flowers. I’m learning a lot. This is my first growing season -Moonshadow Flower Farm✌️❤️

  16. Beatriz Garcia on November 12, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Linda y bendecida noche

  17. Nicole Gardens on November 12, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Getting my first small cut flower garden ready to go, mostly using the winter sowing method since I have limited space inside – Cosmos, Cleome, and Asters into soda bottles this afternoon! Also love the new thumbnails for your videos, really catches your eye when scrolling.

  18. john smith on November 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Your garden is beautiful, your channel is great. Thanks for sharing all your growing knowledge. I’m a beginner and this is very helpful.

  19. M K on November 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Thanks for the helpful information and beautiful pictures.

  20. Sharon George on November 12, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Thanks!! What zinnia is at 1:30? It’s to die for!!!

  21. dc0145a on November 12, 2021 at 10:01 am

    Looking out at snow -2F. LOVED watching this video.

  22. Nikki B on November 12, 2021 at 10:04 am

    What part of Ky?

  23. Anna Che on November 12, 2021 at 10:04 am

    Any suggestions for colder wet summers? Basil and celosia dont grow at all at where i am.

  24. Bren Haas on November 12, 2021 at 10:05 am

    I am excited to grow some new flowers this year… growing dahlias and zinnias and more sunflowers!!!

  25. Sheryl Smith on November 12, 2021 at 10:06 am

    Wonderful video, thank you for sharing your knowledge.

  26. Holly Lisa on November 12, 2021 at 10:09 am

    I’m in Atlanta and I grew my first flowers 2 years ago. zinnia and cosmos were insanely easy to grow, I didn’t really know what I was doing and they looked amazing. This year I’m growing profusion zinnias. Next year I’m going to try bulbs, there’s just seemed advanced

  27. tegoblue on November 12, 2021 at 10:10 am

    I think those orange cosmos are actually a type of marigold. I like them for flower crowns.

  28. Dorothy Baker on November 12, 2021 at 10:11 am

    Love all these flowers

  29. Hobbit Lady on November 12, 2021 at 10:12 am

    another great video 🙂

  30. Candace Elder on November 12, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Would you mind telling me how far apart you plant your zinnias, Snapdragons, Cosmos, & celosia?

  31. Boomer's Outdoors on November 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    Great info and encouragement!

  32. Emiline Trudeau on November 12, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Hey so I have watched your videos on having cut flowers in your landscape and I am thinking of doing something similar. My question is how do you take care of the ground your growing annuals in? Do you till? Do you just throw compost down in the small areas before you plant every time and just break up the ground with a shovel?

  33. Heirloom Heather on November 12, 2021 at 10:19 am

    What a great video! 🙂 All of these are on my list for 2021 along with so many others

  34. R V on November 12, 2021 at 10:21 am

    Thank you for another informative video, I hope to work up the nerve to try ranunculas, they intimidate me.

  35. Cheri Green on November 12, 2021 at 10:22 am

    I love your garden tips and your videos just keep getting better! Great job!

  36. S Piro on November 12, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Idk my zone. I’m a beginner. It’s cold here. Alway been told by my old timers to never plant before the first full moon in June. Frost usually comes around mid September to ward the end more so but we do get 23/24 hrs of sun light in June and lots in July. I want to plant Gladiolas (my all time fav) any hints?? Please!!!!

  37. Michelle Snodderly on November 12, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Thank you for your video! It was super informative. My husband and I are avid gardeners and have several gardens on our property…woodland garden, pond garden, perennial garden and vegetables. This year we are designing a cut flower garden. We don’t have a greenhouse or planting lights…so I am going to try my hand at planting the seeds directly in the soil. We live in PA and are zone 6. I realize that our bloom time will be later due to this…any tips would be appreciated.

  38. Alex Joshi The Gamer on November 12, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Great information!

  39. Giftedhands.gardening on November 12, 2021 at 10:31 am

    So pretty! I can’t wait for this summer’s flower gardening. I love zinnias.

  40. Karen Schwartz on November 12, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Thank you so much for your videos.
