I have been planting out bienniels this week.....that is things that will flower next year, like wallflowers. So far there is honesty, sweet rocket, wallflowers and sweet williams. Still hanging about in the greenhouse are forget me nots, foxgloves and lupins. I have gone big on red with the wallflowers which I have grown from Sarah Raven seed. Last year I had lots of browns and oranges, I have some of those as well but I am hoping these will be something special.
I am still cutting:-
The bad news is I have seen a rabbit in the cutting garden....Must repair the fencing!
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.
