It's been a busy few weeks. - You'd have thought with less gardens to visit, that i'd have more time for blogging, keeping up with emails and clearing my desk. It hasn't worked like that, but I have got lots of things planted, and an amazing amount of flowers picked.
We've been showing off the flowers at Farmers markets, School fairs, and in plenty of bouquets.
the Ranunculus and Anemones have been been fantastic, but now we're also on to Cornflowers, Alliums, Salvia, Sweet peas, and the wonderful Sweet Williams.
Plus the first of the Roses are appearing. - (there's a vase of them on my Sideboard, - I love leftovers).
The overnight showers have been great for watering in the newly planted cosmos, Sunflowers, amaranthus and lots of others. The Dahlias will go in this week.
We're into Wedding season now, and Hill top farm was Floristry central on Friday. Paula and I were both busy making lovely arrangements, and they'll be lots of photos over the next week, but for now, if you havn't been to see Plantpassion recently, then get the following dates in your diary.
Pick your own Posy 4th June - Come and choose the best of the field, and learn how to put them together. - Coffee and cake, and take home your creation.
Open Afternoon - Sunday 8th June 1.00pm- 5.00pm - tea and cake and a tour of the field, plus sweet peas to buy.
