Hello, how are you? I’m in that fuzzy post Christmas haze, unsure of the day and a little unsure of what to do with myself. Yesterday I delivered my final bunch of flowers for the year – a beautiful posy of the summers dried flowers. Ammi, Orach, Strawflowers, Nigella and a Hydrangea making up most of the gang. Working with this lovely lot has made me really excited for next year, I haven’t got a plan sorted as such but I’ll use January and February to make improvements to the garden and come up with a planting list that I hope will be the best yet.

I didn’t have a huge harvest of dried flowers this year but what I have had has been delicious. I really focused on a strong colours, such as these pink and peach strawflowers which have caught so many eyes. I’m thinking I need to dedicate more growing space to these special blooms, expanding the varieties I grow. As my relationship with the space I grow in deepens, I’m sure that I can find them all a perfect home to bloom beautifully next year. I’ve been down a rabbit hole as I’ve written this researching varieties to bring even more colour and joy to the garden next summer, eek, I’m excited for it all!

Have a very Happy New Year, I’ve got a really wonderful workshop season planned for Jan and Feb so pop back in the next few days for more details.
