Well at last the weather is warming, the nights are not too cold and we have uncovered the dahlias and planted all our sweet peas outside.

The sweet peas in the poly tunnel smell heavenly and each morning when you enter the tunnel you are met by the most amazing scent.

Everywhere you look there are new flowers and as June arrives the flower field takes on a new vigour. With scabious, roses, campanula, linaria, snapdragons, iris, chives, nigella, lupins, nepeta, sweet williams, rudbeckia, peony, clematis, calendula, ammi, an abundance of herbs, frothy foliage the list goes on.

We have been overwhelmed with the interest from local customers wanting party flowers, birthday flowers, funeral flowers, brides wanting something different/natural for their very special day and florists interested in working with British Flowers.

We are always learning and love new design challenges. At times when there seems not enough hours in the day, watering, picking and sowing seems to morph into one another, once we line up our flowers to create, its as if the clock stops and we are in a relaxed state of zen!!
