These are our beautiful pumpkins outside the front door. Grown by me and carved by number one daughter.
I am still cutting Chrysanthemums which considering the big storm is amazing, and today I have been cutting Beech to go with them for the farmers market at Snape Maltings on Saturday. One of the Chrysanthemums in a particularly fetching burnt orange is called Topsy which I find rather cute...who remembers Topsy and Tim?
Some of my wallflowers have died in the wind, so I am replanting hopefully on Sunday. I still have quite a lot of planting to do.... so I need good weather on Sunday please!
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.
