Flowers cut today

Hello all, long time - no posts!...I've been so busy and struggling with eye/screen issues it has limited my screen/computer time.

My cut flower patch increases in size every month Big Grin... Ive managed to plant in 300 dahlias - its cold so nog many are flowering but they have started.

I am loving the research on suitable flowers for my patch and again wish I had more energy to dig a few more beds. 

The wheelbarrow flowers have become quite BBM popular and I just wish I had done it years ago. Super  excited to see my dahlias start and already sowong perennial seed for next years plants ( new beds)

They're beautiful, Scarlet. What perennials are you sowing now?

Im trying helenium lollipop. Euphorbia golden foam. Achillea - I already have a fabulous bed - but it needs refreshing. Verbena B - I already grow this but it doesnt over winter for me so I start new in the summer. Alchmilla mollis. Started some perennial honesty? Never seen that before but Derry Watkins at Special plants grow it so thought i would have a go.

Chaerophyllum Hirsutum var. roseum -??! anyone grow it? I saw it on a photp and thought it may suit my garden ? fingers crossed.
If anyone has any ideas for anything else I am all ears
