    I love the smell of marigolds. Some people don't like the smell of sunflowers. I love the smell of sunflowers too to me it always means late summer and fall in the country. Every child should grow sunflowers. The large seeds and fast growth are great for the impatient. Not everyone has a yard or garden but nearly everyone has room for a pot. I love tithonia (Mexican sunflower) birds love them.

    Love the video. Tithonia common name is Mexican sunflower which is why they have a large seed, grow tall, hollow stems and love the heat. This is my first year with a dedicated cut flower garden and would love to learn more . Thanks for the great info!

    Hey!! thanks for the vids. So helpful! I'm cleaning up a new spot for a polinator bed in my yard over by my veggie garden. Problem is its really RAW land that has never been worked, clay soil, and very rocky and weedy. If I want to grow zinnia's, poppies, cosmos's etc. I notice you put down that landscape fabric with holes in it. Is this how you plant/sow your seeds, and do you find this a good option for weeds? I'm worried after i spend all this time cleaning up the space and amending the soil, I wont know the difference between my seeds sprouting, and actual weeds.

    Loved the flowers you included on your list. Hooray for Sunflowers, Zinnias, and Marigolds. Didn’t know anyone dared to use marigolds in bouquets like the tip about combining them with aromatic herbs. Amaranth & Celosia are close relatives, but I think Amaranth is wilder which may explain its hardiness. Bye for now!🌱

    Hey Freshcutky! What variety is that orange marigold that kind of looks like a mum? Where did you get the seed?

    I love the smell of Marigolds and Cosmos. It is different from other flowers and reminds me of childhood. Im glad I found your channel. I planted cut flowers in my garden for the first time and so far it is so much fun! And there are not so many youtube videos about it.

    I would also add morning glories which self seeding and can be invasive. Bulbs like daffodils are also easy so are tubers like daylilies.

    I really like your informative flower growing videos. I recently moved to Canada, and my area is zone 2b and zone 3 transition area. Can you please tell me that how long it takes seeds to flowering by sunflowers, cosmos and zinnia?

    For some inexplicable reason I have never been able to grow sunflowers!

    Great video! I also like that the varieties you showcased are "cheap and beautiful" and I would add easy. Flowers that can be sown in the garden in spring and bloom that year are the absolute easiest. If you can think of any easy, cheap and beautiful flowers for future videos it would be a great series. And the self seeding varieties means free plants in the future!

    I adore zinnias, but last year I got that white mildew on them which made me sad. Cosmos in MD for me bloom late and re-seed wonderfully! Marigold for the win to keep pest away!

    Great info. I'm just an amateur gardener, who's had good luck with a few other seed varieties: evening primrose, nasturtiums, and 4 oclocks are a few I would add to the list for beginners.

    Great video! Everyone is a beginner when it comes to a plant you haven’t grown before.
