I’m hoping to grow my own flowers for a late July wedding next year (2011). I want blue flowers, something simple. I like the Japan Iris. Would this be a suitable flower in terms of when it blooms? If so when is the best time to plant? There is plenty of space and various aspects where I can plant them.
Professional growers only do it by having batches of flowers coming and even then they get it wrong too.
This will not save you money. You could have some garden flowers to use, from your own garden or others and get some shop flowers to go with them.
