Once we hit April it is all hands to the pump as they say! Particularly for us as we have taken on our new walled garden. What have we been doing this week?
There was a time when daffodils just seemed to be of a rather jolly yellow colour .... of Wordsworth fame, but now they come in beautiful soft ivory, peach and pale yellows with ruffled centres and incredible sweet perfume. I wouldn't hesitate to use these for weddings whenever after the bride would associate that scent with her wedding bouquet.
My story in flowers started as a child growing a tiny patch of London Pride Saxifraga...also known as Whimsey or Look Up and Kiss Me! Fast forward to 8 years ago when I started a City and Guilds training in floristry. I qualified as a florist and then to deepen my growing knowledge and skills I trained in horticulture as well. I trained under a WRAGS scheme at Darsham Nurseries and at Somerleyton Hall. Developing a passion for both growing and designing/arranging British garden flowers, I planted a cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown, coupled with a love of British grown flowers. and natural styling, I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make romantic natural designs. for weddings, events, gifts and much more.
