As we move gently from summer to autumn, I thought you might like to see what we are cutting. All the Dahlias, leaves and Cosmos were picked today in our cutting garden. The hips are from Hampshire and the Scabious from Norfolk. I love the lush abundance that the season brings.
We have come to the end of what I think of as the summer wedding season....which slips seamlessly into the winter wedding season. We have flowered some gorgeous weddings this year and got to know some special brides. Over the coming months I will gradually upload all the stunning pictures they have sent me. and write some more detailed blog posts.
We are the process of sorting Christmas...sorry!! More details to follow.
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.
