Always Wanted a Cutting Garden? This Starter Kit Makes It Easy

What’s bucolic bliss? Why, a gorgeous cutting garden that yields fresh, handpicked floral arrangements, of course. The problem? Erm, we haven’t much clue what to plant or, honestly, where to even start. 

Enter organic bedding brand Plover’s new cutting garden collection. The Seattle-based company cleverly noticed that starting one’s own flower patch is an intimidating prospect—and responded by whipping up five gorgeous, garden-in-a-box kits to simplify the process.

Included? Extra detailed instructions on where, how and when to plant the different flowers in your garden, and a curated mix of tubers and seeds for six to seven flower varieties—all of which were selected because they bloom at the same time and look beautiful together in a vase.

Peep the five collections below and tell us you’re not inspired, too.
