British Flowers Week starts on Monday the 19th June. It is a week long celebration of British grown flowers organised by New Covent Garden Flower Market,  you can find out more details here.

In the run up to this I was honoured to be mentioned in an article in the Telegraph Gardening section. You can read the "Ladies Who Bunch" article online here. I was even more chuffed that they used my photo both as the lead photo and on the cover of the gardening section. I guess it helps that I had wonderful photos taken by the fabulous Katie Spicer. 

During the week I am aiming to upload a new You Tube clip each day. You can find my YouTube channel here. Wish me luck! Hopefully the sun will shine and I won't have to do too many takes for each video!

Then on Saturday Ann and I will be attending a wonderful workshop organised by Grace Alexander Flowers held at Forde Abbey, Dorset.

In the meantime, we have been busy planting out this years flower plants, harvesting the flowers that are blooming, and getting the ground ready for more planting. Oh and a bit of weeding, rotavating, strimming and path laying! We had a warm Winter and a cold Spring which tricked a lot of plants so the flowers I would have expected have been a bit jumbled in their flowering order, but beautiful none the less. 

If you would like a bouquet or posy of beautiful British flowers in your home for British Flowers Week or beyond, do get in touch. We like to have at least 24 hours notice as your flowers are picked to order.

We are supplying a few freelance Wiltshire florists with wholesale British grown flowers already but definitely have capacity to supply more. Drop me an email and I will let you have our wholesale British Flowers price list and we can arrange a patch visit.

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

Wow, well haven't we had some gorgeous weather! It has meant a few more hours on the flower patch watering, but the growth we have had has been amazing. So many flowers are in bloom on the patch at the moment and it looks very colourful suddenly. 

We have been talking to a few new freelance florists about buying our flowers. Some have managed to visit the patch and they have been very impressed. Orders are being taken for upcoming events and happy florists can use locally grown flowers with the knowledge that they will get the freshest flowers on the day, grown with love and picked with care. 

Our flowers are perfect for florists looking for that just gathered look to their flowers, the country garden style that is so popular for events at the moment. 

So if you are a florist fairly local to Upavon, Wiltshire why not get in touch to see if we are growing flowers that may interest you. We love having flowery visitors and conversations. Bye for now, Sara
