If you will scroll down to page 2, there are threads on people's ideas of the best three fillers that they grow and on the best 5 (I think) flowers. It's a good place to start...Ann

RE: Fillers for arrangements/best cut flowers!

I whacked off some cilantro flowers and stuck them in a vase with some zinnias. They were really pretty, smelled good, AND they've lasted for nearly two weeks so far. In fact they outlasted the zinnias so I put them in with some fresh ones. DH saw them and said, "Nice, is that baby's breath?" So, I planted more cilantro!

RE: Fillers for arrangements/best cut flowers!

cilantro, huh? I figure if a man notices and says, "nice!", it is worth looking into at least. Is cilantro easy to grow? I am pretty sure I have had cilantro seeds but never actually tried to grow any. I tend to buy seeds that I never end up planting (although I do plant lots just not as many as I buy). Although the cilantro may have found me when my Mother passed away. Oh well, with such a great endorsement, I am now willing to plant some. Shirley
