It is six weeks since I last posted a blog post! So what have we been up to? Weddings, photoshoots, cutting, arranging, watering mainly! Also both The Royal Shows...Norfolk and Sandringham....
Keeping up with everything has been difficult. I have gone from cutting Roses, Sweet Peas, Sweet Williams to Dahlias. I have a list of new things I would like to grow next year! I think the best thing I can do is post a little gallery of pictures taking you through the last few weeks. Then hopefully I will have a little more time to keep the blog up to date.
In the garden I am just finishing sowing the biennials...a little late I know! Sweet Williams, Wallflowers, Sweet Rocket, Canterbury Bells etc.Cutting, it is Dahlias all the way along with herbs and grasses. I am ordering my bulbs and seed for autumn planting and sowing to keep the cycle turning.
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.
