Our flowers reflect the time of the year, with all the colour, scent and character that goes with it.
Springtime has a gentle, woodland feel…
… with scented arrangements of hellebores, narcissi and forget-me-nots, and bigger, more dramatic displays of cherry blossom, lilac, foxgloves and tulips. We grow ranunculus and anemones in the tunnels, and violets, aquilegias, hellebores, hyacinth, lily-of-the-valley, narcissi, tulips, viburnum and cherry blossom outdoors.
Summer brings an abundance of colour, scent and style…
By early summer the sweet peas, poppies and early annuals such as cornflowers and scabious are in flower, making simple wildflower style posies, while peonies, scented roses, and later the first dahlias, make for rich and abundant arrangements. In summer we grow astrantia, campanula, cosmos, delphinium, honeysuckle, hydrangea, lavender, mint, peonies, phlox, poppies, roses, scabious, snapdragons and sweet peas.
Autumn brings japanese anemones and rich velvety dahlias…
…along with relaxed arrangements of turning leaves, seed heads, berries and hips. We pick aconitums, amaranthus, consolida, crocosmias, dahlias, echinacea, eupatorium, helenium, hydrangea, nicotiana, penstemon, sedum and snapdragons.
Winter flowers are delicate and some of the most exotically scented.
Combined with fresh, green foliage, or bare stems of winter flowering cherries, arrangements are simple and elegant. For winter arrangements we use anemone, cyclamen, eucalyptus, heather, hellebores, hyacinth, muscari, narcissi, ranunculus, rosemary, snowdrops and winter flowering honeysuckle.
