I recently visited this gorgeous cutting garden in Germany and it got me thinking about all the pretty cutting gardens back at home! I thought it would be fun to make a list of some u-pick flower farms around the US. Most are open in the summer, some in the spring too. Bring some clippers, a bucket of water and a few friends for a fun flower cutting session! Flower farms are much more inexpensive than florists, so it's a cheap way to buy cut flowers for a party or wedding. It's also a great family activity for a Saturday! A good way to find out about cutting gardens is to go for a drive through the country or visit a farmer's market and ask the vendors if they allow guests to their farms. I've gathered a list of some great flower farms around the country that let you come and pick your own stems. - By Chelsea Fuss
