The first Field Rose opened today. It was a Darcey Bussel
This isn't a picture of it, as i'd sold it to a florist within a couple of hours of picking it. This is another that opened this evening. It's Rose season.
It's also Scent season
The Sweet peas are still amazing, and they've been joined by Sweet Williams, Dianthus, Herbs and more Alliums, these hanging bells are Nectaroscordum (used to be known as Allium Bulgaricum)
My Newly planted Lupins have been flowering their socks off. (although both my friend Dana Leigh and my Mother in Law had displays that I'm aiming to emulate next year) and there are whites, brights and every colour in between on my field at the moment.
The Planting continues. Most of the Dahlias are in the ground, and there are lots of beds of small plants, or direct sown seeds just coming through. The Polytunnel is emptying, although the greenhouse has now been filled with Biennials. There are lots more Iceland poppies, and Hesperis and Honesty being sown as they've been so popular this year.
If you'd like to see behind the scenes at Hill top farm, we have 3 public open days coming up.
This Sunday 7th June 1-5pm
Tuesday 16th June 1-5pm
Wednesday 17th June 1-5pm
