I have been sorting through the garden photos from last year and came upon this spring picture. I went out to inspect all the pots of bulbs today. The Crocus, Tete a Tetes, Reticula Iris and Dutch Iris are all peeping through. Can't wait!
The weather was quite mild today, not sure what happens from here?? I have had to repair the cold frames and the greenhouse once so hopefully not too much more wind please.
Anyway this week it is all back to normal with Twelth Night tomorrow. My job list this week looks like this:-
Start getting compost onto newly dug bed,.
Sow more Sweet Pea seed,
Order more Sweet Pea seed,
Clear out greenhouse ready for more Sweet Peas,
Yes it is all about Sweet Peas....will let you know how I get on.
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.
