The weather is so dreadful that I thought shall I put up a picture of rain and then I thought no....let's cheer ourselves up with some summer flowers!
Obviously we can't complain here in Suffolk when you consider what has been happening in the West Country. BUT it seems to have been wet and windy for ever. This does mean I am sorting out some paperwork and this week I have published my first newsletter. If you would like a copy please email me and I will send one to you. I am also sending out details of a "Grow your own bouquet" workshop which I am running at Somerleyton Hall in June, again if you would like details please email and I will be happy to send them to you. I have just looked at the forcast and the weather is set to be like this for awhile so it looks like I might get a chance to order my summer bulbs earlier this year!
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.
