June 6th - growing flowers for my wedding.
Hi. I am getting married June 6th, 2009 and am starting to panic since we are trying to budget and will be providing the flowers for our wedding. I live in Zone 7a on the Eastern SHore and was wondering what flowers I could grow that will be ready by the wedding date? Various flowers that I currently have growing in the garden are tons of Corn Poppies (all colors), tons of Larkspur, Sweet William, and Batchelor Buttons and am pretty sure they will be in bloom by then. Although I am worried the sweet william may be peterring out by then. The early flowering Sweet Peas which were direct seeded on 11/21/09 around a trellis outdoors are about 1" tall now so will those be in bloom by June 6th? I was wondering what else I could start indoors then move to the coldframe prior to permanently setting out? Will the Sweet William still be in bloom? Could I start Zinnias and early flowering Sunflowers indoors and then transplant? Thank you for your help and insight.
