My name is Kate and I am originally from England, although I now live and garden in Central Florida. Growing flowers and especially cut flowers is something which I love to do and Grey Tabby Gardens is a place where I can share my passion for raising lovely flowers from seed to be cut and enjoyed inside. I love to photograph everything I grow too, so that I can capture all that floral loveliness in pretty images. Although my garden is quite large – about an acre – my cutting garden is quite small. Through trial and error I have found what grows best and when in this climate. I make loads of mistakes but I continue to experiment and learn! There is nothing better than picking beautiful blooms that have been nurtured from seed and bringing them into the house or giving them to friends knowing that they are freshly picked and free of any toxic chemicals. Zinnia, Larkspur, Celosia, Ammi, Orlaya, Sunflowers, Stock and Snapdragon are all grown here. Those gorgeous Dahlias are also showing promise. I also post about other areas of my garden too and about other gardens I visit which I find inspiring. I hope that the information and photos that you find here will inspire you to consider planting a flower garden too!
I love to hear from people so please feel free to leave a comment – I will always respond!
