“Kristen’s book has been an excellent resource in my quest to grow and create my own bouquets. Her book is easy to understand and beautifully laid out. I love the variety of flowers she has featured, and I feel that I have a clear plan to tackle this project.”

– CHANTELLE BERG, HOME GARDENER

Hey, I'm Kristen

I’m a zone 3 gardener out of Saskatoon, SK who is passionate about growing pretty flowers.  I have created a system to help you grow your own beautiful cut flower garden that makes it as visual and easy as possible.  If I can grow beautiful flowers with my colder temps and short growing season, you can too!

I’m a former farm kid turned urban gardener and my mission is to make gardening as easy and accessible as possible for new gardeners.  Not everyone has “that friend who grows everything” and I want to be that person for you, through my e-books, social media, and blog, Shifting Roots.

When I’m not growing flowers, you can find me spending time with my husband and two (soon to be three!) kids and singing, playing piano, or baking up a storm.

stop wasting money on soon-to-be dead plants

And learn exactly what to plant and how to do it so you can enjoy your flowers, instead of being stuck with a weed patch and shrivelled up, dead plants–along with your gardening hopes and dreams.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideally, you would have access to a backyard garden space of at least 13 feet by 24 feet or similar.  The beauty of this book and these plans is that you can always scale them up or down according to your needs.

It’s okay!  You can plant as little or as much as you like, you just might not get 3 full bouquets a week.  The only situation that it wouldn’t work on some level is if you lived in an apartment with no balcony and were trying to grow everything indoors.

Once the garden is planted, you should be able to maintain it by watering as needed (usually once a day, with mulch you can go longer in between) and weeding for 10-15 minutes 5 days a week when the plants are small.  Once the flowers are full grown, there will be barely any weeding to do, and it should drop down to 30 minutes once a week at most.

Yes!  My customers have been successful at growing cut flowers with my ebook in everything from zone 2 to zone 8.

Then the easy, no seed starting, plan is for you!  As long as you can find a spot with enough sunlight, water your flowers often, and keep up with weeding, you should be able to grow cut flowers.

Most of the flowers suggested in this book will start blooming from mid-July until Frost.  Everything should be in bloom by early to mid August.  This has been my experience in zone 3, but you might get flowers earlier if you live somewhere warmer.

When the flowers are first starting to bloom, you might only get 1 small bouquet the first week or two.  After that you should get at least 3 medium bouquets a week..

Technically, yes.  Last year I started experimenting with growing cut flower varieties in containers on my deck and so far it has been successful.  I did not include more information on it in this book because I want to trial it for at least another year.  What I can tell you now, is that if you decide to try it out, stake any flowers over 18 inches with a tomato cage!

You don’t have to sort through multiple gardening books and seed catalogues to try and patch together some sort of half-hearted plan that will end in failure, or spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a flower farming course that you don’t really need at the backyard garden level.  Let me give you the framework and plans to get it right the first time.
