Yesterday was the first farmer's market of the year at Snape. I am only cutting foliage and Hazel catkins at present but had pots of Crocus, Primroses and Snowdrops coming out into flower. For a splash of colour I had a delivery of beautiful scented narcissus from the Isles of Scilly. It was a good start to the year if a bit chilly standing at the entrance to the marquee.
The next market is on the first of March. If you would like me to email you inadvance with what I am cutting please send me your email address.
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.
