Flower Stalls and Workshops
There has been so much happening in the garden in the last month, my head is spinning in the best possible way. Flowers for all occasions have been leaving my work bench and I couldn’t be prouder of what my backgarden farm is producing. The weather has not always been on-side but the colours, textures and sweet twists and turns of each stem have made every single jar and bunch totally unique.
It’s not just my hands that have been working over-time but my camera too. There is so much I want to capture and share I thought I’d gather all the best bits and fill you in…Firstly, my flower stall has been happening on alternative Saturdays. I adore putting these sweet jars of joy together, meeting the nicest people and having the best chats. I sell £5 jam jars of the week’s best blooms, it will be running on the following dates from 10am – 12pm (or until they sell out).
Flower Stall Dates
With the ease of restrictions, workshops can now start again – hooray! I love hosting these at home and for the next two I have partnered with Delmeza from Lumi Essence Aromas who creates the most amazing smelling aromatherapy candles. We will be running two dried flower wreath and candle workshops in July. First you will learn to custom blend your own candle and then I will be showing you how to make a dried flower wreath. Weather permitting, I hope to make the wreaths in the garden where you’ll be able to create amoungst the flowers using (mostly) homegrown blooms. The wreaths can then be enjoyed for summer and beyond. We ran one before Christmas and it was a truly beautiful day. Details below

Party Flowers and Edibles
If you have followed me for a while, you will know how important it is for me share ways to make the everyday beautiful. Party flowers and edible flowers, make any day into a special occasion. I love creating flower mixes for your celebrations, these pictured were for a photoshoot but I’ve supplied jars for afternoon teas and drinks with friends. A mix of large, medium and small jars is around £35 but as every occasion is different speak to me about your requirements. I can work to colour palettes or your own vases – I just LOVE sharing my flowers with you.
Edible flowers are another great way to bring a natural touch to your celebration cakes, not only do they cover up any wonky baking (hi there!) but they any cake look extra delicious. Jars start at £6 plus extra for roses when in bloom and again I can work to a colour palette. I sell a few of these jars a week and they are always such a treat to cut for.
Last but not least, I have been supplying garden bunches to a local grocers, Hayes and Holt. I wanted to create something different to my standard jars that would work alongside their existing products. These garden bunches are so beautiful and unique – each week a different selection of blooms joins the party. I’ve had some great feedback from customers about how long these bunches last. I cut the flowers when they are at their best and only supply when they at their healthiest and happiest. Because I am still growing on a small scale, availability is governed by nature but I am ok with that, they are a sample of the garden at it’s finest and that friends is always worth waiting for.
There are hopefully many flower filled months ahead, for the most up to date information come and find me on Instagram @lottsandlots or sign up for my newsletter, I am going to be working on it over the summer holidays and it will be the first place to find out about new workshops and stall dates.
