Welcome back to part two of our series on cut flowers. If you haven't listened to part 1 of the series - episode 29 - go back and check that out before listening to this one. It will make more sense that way, and then you'll have Hilary's whole top 10 list. Last week we talked about annual flowers that can be direct seeded in your garden, and this week we're focusing on annual flowers that do better as transplants.

Hello, I’m Hilary Dahl. Outside of this podcast, my job is to help beginning and experienced growers create beautiful and productive gardens. I have the unique experience of working in on a wide range of projects, from small backyard garden plots to multi-acre vegetable farms. I also work in my own garden every day when I get home. This podcast is an opportunity to discuss seasonal garden topics and share the the joy of growing your own food.
Hi, my name is Kellie Phelan, and I've been gardening for about 3 years. I started with just a few containers, growing lettuce and peas and cherry tomatoes. I loved shopping in my backyard! Just a few steps out the back door and I was harvesting food for dinner. So, it seemed only natural to expand my garden and I'm working on fitting as many fruits and veggies as possible into my small city lot. I've made a lot of what I'll call 'valuable' mistakes - learning as I go, and Hilary has been an awesome resource. I am honored and excited to be a part of Encyclopedia Botanica, where I'll be chatting with Hilary, asking questions, and helping all of us get better at growing food.
