The garden is now in full swing. Today I have switched the first tulips for the next cut flower crop – scabiosca, echniops and cornflowers – ready for high summer blooming and a gorgeous garden wedding. The greenhouse is packed full of seedlings and despite wondering where it will all go, I still panic that I need to plant more.
May might be one of my favourite months in the garden. It’s the point in the year when the seasons magically mix. January planted daffodils shyly bloom, tulips sing and the first flushes of early summer flowers give you a wink (I have spotted my first sweet pea and rose). As a result, I have been selling some really lovely bouquets celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and work colleagues. It’s a joy to have my hands busy again.
If I have a few orders, I pick by the bucket and separate as needed. This bucket was full of so many lovely colours and varieties that I was proud to share and put my name too. It also gave me a great opportunity to show what a mix bucket of flowers can look like. Obviously the content will change as the months pass but it will always contain a mix of foliage and flowers in a variety of colours. These buckets are perfect for anyone wanting to do DIY wedding flowers or needing flowers for any other celebration (I did a beautiful autumn bucket last year full of sunflowers, currant leaves and dahlias for a wake). They are £45 per bucket and can be pre-ordered months in advance or even with a day to two to spare. Just send me a message to get in touch, can’t wait to meet you. xx
