Last Thursday I was taking son number 2 to a bus at 7.30am. This was the view over the marshes at Blythburgh. The light was so beautiful and I saw a red deer stag standing in a field. Today you can't go outside due to the wind and on and off heavy rain. This is a large clump of wild fennel. I use a lot of fennel seed heads in my wreaths for Christmas and luckily I picked them this week ......otherwise I fear the seeds would have been scattered!
Did I tell you I had been sowing sweet peas? I grow mostly old scented varieties including Cupani and Painted Lady.I go big on scent. I sow them in toilet rolls ( cardboard centres obviously), that way I can plant out without root disturbance. My conservatory table is coverd in pots, as soon as they are up I will rehome in the greenhouse.....that is if it is still there after the big storm. I am thinking Wizard of Oz
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.
