I am making good progress in the garden now with just a few pots of bulbs left to plant.
However the most important news is that I have ordered two deliveries of Mistletoe from an organic grower near Tenbury Wells in Worcsetershire ( home of the famous Mistletoe market). They cut the Mistletoe stems fresh from their own orchards. I am really pleased to be able to offer bunches of Mistletoe as it can be difficult to find and always makes people smile. The deliveries will come in the week beginning 2nd December (for parties) and then the week beginning 16th December (for Christmas and New Year). Mistletoe drys out if kept too hot but if you buy early keep it outside in the cool until you need it. Remember that it is poisonous so must be kept away from children. It has long been part of a traditional British Christmas and it is part of folklore that it should be hung above doorways and other places where people meet and exchange kisses. Please phone or email me to place an order. Bunches are tied with ribbon and cost £3, larger bunches for hotels, pubs, parties and larger homes can be arranged and are priced depending how many stems you require. I will bring bunches to my stall at Snape Farmer's market but as I only have a limited supply, if you are coming and know you would like some, please contact me so I can put some aside for you.
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.
