Spring | Summer 2019
The Shop is now open for the best cut flower seeds for the 2019 flower growing season. Are you ready? There will be new and exciting varieties being added over the next few weeks but some of them are very limited editions, so get your order in sooner rather than later. And yes, the rumours are true. Some very exclusive varieties are coming in from the United States very soon.
My ground is still and cold. I’m sitting indoors, amongst a pile of books, scraps of pages torn out of magazines, half drawn sketches and an array of pictures of country gardens, cutting patches and herb-filled courtyards. One of the hardest parts of growing anything happens inside, before I’ve even touched the earth, the plotting and the planning, paths and priorities. Although now, waiting for Spring, with hope and endless possibilities, it doesn’t feel hard. I dream of meadows and potagers and artful hazel wigwams. Waiting for Spring, I feel like anything and everything is possible. It takes a few years of growing to know that meadows only look perfect for maybe weeks at a time, that the best kitchen gardens don’t actually produce any vegetables because it leaves ugly gaps in the rows. That anyone can make a garden look rosy in June.
