This week has been BUSY. I am working on borders in three different gardens, plus my own! They each have their own unique style and it is great fun to be involved with other people's gardens. I have been planting perennials, cutting back shrubs and sowing sweetpeas, and hopefully helping the customers create beautiful gardens.
I also went this weekend for a special birthday party for my aunt and met up with my cousin ....Wendy. She is very artistic and makes lovely vintage crafts including these beautiful pottery tealights. She also makes bunting and other decortive pieces from vintage fabrics. She is based at Lime Kiln Crafts (you can find her on facebook) and is inspired by her love of Cornwall. I think these tealights would look fab for Christmas but also I am thinking ahead to next years weddings....
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.
