Buds Cutting Gardens plants and maintains small scale flower farms in Toronto. 

The plants in our gardens are selected for vase life, intensity of colour and fragrance, as well as bloom time. Gardens include a mix of perennials, annuals, bulbs, seedlings and tubers for continued interest and plants that return.

To discuss this year's available plants, how to get started, or the space you'd like to devote to your own cutting garden, contact us.

How it works

Many plants for cutting gardens are often hard to find in garden centres, and while growing seedlings for your own garden is rewarding, it takes time, know-how and most of all space! We grow plants from seed for reliable seedlings for your flower garden, using organic practices. Come spring, we'll set up a date with you to plant the seedlings and share information on how to care for your garden. We offer regular maintenance packages, as well as occasional help if you'd like a summer of getting your hands in the dirt.

Getting started

We can help get your site prepared for your cutting garden, either in fall or in spring. In order to see what's possible in your growing space we like to set up an initial fee-waived consultation. In that consultation, we'll go over the plants available to you along with options for getting started in preparing your garden. 



Working with Claire on my cutting garden has been such a joy.  It's not only been wonderful for my family (my 2 year old especially loves cutting flowers and smelling them!), but my neighbours have all commented on how beautiful it is. 

Being a busy mom and business owner, starting my own garden like this is something I never would have had the time to do.  But with Claire there to help as little or as much as we needed, it has been an incredibly enjoyable experience. 

What I love most about having the cutting garden is being able to cut a few stems and share them with friends and family.  If we are on our way to visit someone, I can bring flowers from my garden instead of stopping by the flower shop, which is so much more personal.

I'm so happy with my experience with Claire at Buds Cutting Gardens!
