Why Grow Flowers?

Flowers are magic - literally magic, irresistible to birds, bees, wasps, other flower pollinators and even humans. There are as many reasons to grow flowers as there are flowers. Still, twelve reasons are found to have been the most appropriate as to tell why one should grow flowers.

★ Flowers make the world more beautiful.

★ Flowers smell good. Good smells make you happier.

★ Flowers tell you the season.

★ Flowers attract predators that will help kill the pests in your garden.

★ You never feel poor if you have bunches of flowers to give away.

★  Flowers like sweet peas, lupins, woad, broom, wisteria can fix nitrogen and help fertilize your garden.

★ Flowers lead to seeds - to replant your garden.

★ Flowers taste good.

★  Flowers like chamomile, borage and foxgloves appear to make the plants they grow with more vigorous.

★  Most flowers have 'cottage kitchen' uses - you can make wines with them or make calendula ointment if you cut yourself in the garden. Our ancestors grew only what was useful (like roses) and preferably it was beautiful too.

★  Flowers can help weed control. Marigolds repel couch grass, dahlias will stop grass intruding in your garden, a thick crop of poppies will help clean up weeds, cornflowers stop some weed seeds germinating, thickly sown sunflowers will stunt weeds and choke them out.

★ Any sourpuss smiles if you give them flowers.
