Photobombing bee!

So British Flowers Week started today and I made my first video clip of the week. I thought I would share it here with you. 

I have just finished co-hosting #britishflowers on Twitter. Tonight we were chatting about #britishflowersweek and how we would all be celebrating it, spreading the word about British Flowers, and generally just oohing and aaahing over the sumptuous photos that the Twitter folk were posting. In amongst the tweets I spotted a link from a wonderful lady called Fiona who runs Firenza Flowers. She has written a journal post about why she uses British Flowers as often as possible. Take a look at it here. She sums up how I as a grower feel about my "babies" that I have nurtured to the perfect point for cutting. I hope you enjoy her post as much as I did. 

I love the way our customers enjoy our flowers. They love the natural style of the flowers, and the fact that they are a lot different to a supermarket bunch. The sight or scent of them often trigger memories of loved ones no longer here, or happy times they spent as a child. They evoke nostalgia. Sweet William and Sweet Peas especially seem to have this effect.

So whatever you do this week to celebrate British Flowers Week, take time to stop and smell the roses, or the sweet peas, or whatever flowers you may have in your home or garden. Take time to smell them, look at them and really enjoy them. And if they are grown by an artisan flower grower know that they will have been grown with passion, love and commitment to bring you great joy. What more could you ask of a humble bloom.

Here you have a look around the grow tunnel that I have at my home. It's where the young seedlings go once they have been germinated in my greenhouse. I am also growing some ranunculus and Galilee Anemones in there to give them some protection from the weather. It's not a full sized polytunnel, but it's better than I had this time last year. :-) 

We make use of as much space as we can to pack it all in. 

 

Enjoy, Sara x

Spring tulip at My Flower Patch

Well, it's been a mixed bag weather wise so far at My Flower Patch. We've had some sun, some rain, some hail! But I managed to find a sunny day to take a video. It's a bit windy but no where near as windy as the February one. We have made a few changes since the last video. Added some new no dig beds, and paths in between. Taken out the old annual growth and cut back some of last years perennial stems to make way for this years growth. There is lots going on back at home in the green house and grow tunnel too, maybe I should video those next! :-) 

When I took this video I had just harvested a couple of small buckets of tulips. We are making a slow start with tulips, but we are getting there. I think the cold nights haven't helped things along. It was -0.2 in the grow tunnel last night. On the night of the 11th April my grow tunnel showed a max temp of 31.4C and a minimum of 0.3C quite a difference. But the plants I have in there are growing away getting ready to be planted out. 

We have set up some new cold frames and I'm also using some plastic mini greenhouses to act as large cold frame type areas. They offer less protection that the glass house or grow tunnel and help get the young plants ready to be planted out. 

In the seedling stakes we have cornflowers and achillea bulking up nicely. We have snapdragons and foxgloves growing on from plugs I bought, and we have been sowing up a storm. So my new propagation bench is full of seed trays as well as the old one now. It's always a battle at this time of year to work out where to spend my time. We try to get a balance between working at the patch and back at home in the greenhouse or tunnel. But there literally aren't enough hours in the day, or enough space on my propagation bench. 

I hope you enjoy a quick tour around My Flower Patch. I hope you are enjoying the series of videos showing how we grow our flowers. There will hopefully be a lot more in flower by the time I shoot next months film. Bye for now.

Well I did take the video in March, but didn't quite get around to uploading it until now! Oops! It's a busy time of year when you are growing flowers. You may be able to see some of the changes that have taken place. The tulips are poking through and we are slowly clearing and preparing the flower beds for their new plants. Lots going on behind the scenes in the greenhouse  & my grow tunnel also. I should probably do a video of those this month. Anyhow...enjoy a less windy & less noisy March on My Flower Patch! Sara :-)

b2ap3_thumbnail_Lemon-eclair-sunflower-summer-flowers-myflowerpatch.co.uk.jpg

I have fallen in love...again! With a sunflower, but it is a sunflower with a difference. It's name is Lemon Eclair and it is truly scrumptious! We grow lots of sunflowers, yellow, cream, red, orange, dark almost chocolate. But this one is a little different. It is an early flowering sunflower, which we love as it means we can have sunflowers blooming for longer on the patch than we have previously, but, if possible, it is even more delicious to look at than some of the others we grow. It has caused quite a stir on the Patch, and on my Twitter, and Facebook and Instagram feeds. It has pale creamy lemon petals with a dark chocolatey centre, and a ruffly look to the petals and centre that is quite something.

I also had fun taking macro photographs of it at a course yesterday. To me it looks almost like flames reaching out.

It mixes well with bright summer flowers, such as the scabious and alstroemeria in the top shot, a cheerful colour mix of red, blue and orange. Bright bold and beautiful British grown flowers. This was a vase arrangement as a surprise gift for some newly weds. It works equally well with pale pinks and blues as the lemon is light enough to carry these well.

It is our first year growing Lemon Eclair but it certainly won't be the last.

Is there a flower that is making your heart sing at the moment? We certainly hope so, why not let us know in the comments. Sara x
