If you only have room for a small cutting patch, these luscious and long-flowering annuals are the 3 to grow.

This collection contains:

I love cut flowers, the marrying of the inside with the outside. As Vita Sackville-West said, "A flowerless room is a soul-less room to my way of thinking; but even one solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it."

Our relationship with the plant – cut and brought inside – does not then stop at a fleeting whisk past in the garden, but continues inside as a long hard stare. You've got to grow your own and with these beautiful cut-and-come-again varieties, you'll have buckets and buckets to choose from.

Reviewed 3rd November 2015 by Emily Hayward

I don't have much space in my garden so this small cutting patch seemed a perfect zingy solution. Unfortunately, the Euphorbia didn't start flowering until almost September, but our awful cold summer might be to blame? The Rudbeckia and Antirrhinum have been flowering all summer and are still flowering in the beginning of November and have been fantastic. I put them in a vase with some Nicotiana Lime green to try to get a similar effect.

Reply from the Sarah Raven Team:

""Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear that the Euphorbia was late flowering, it should overwinter and flower from as early as May next year giving you a much longer flowering season. We recommend cutting back the stems now as they brown, which will allow room for new growth. These plants can then withstand cold temperatures and be kept through the winter without protection.

If you would like further advice please contact our horticultural adviser at plantadvice@sarahraven.com"
