The new season ahead

In the dark cold winter months I started to plan out what I wanted to grow on the cutting plot for the new season ahead. I spent hours looking at websites, books, seed catalogues and I tried to shortlist what I wanted to grow again and what new and exciting variety of flowers I had discovered and wanted to try.

I have bought most of my seeds from two well-known specialists in cut flowers seeds, Sarah Raven  and Higgledy Gardens. Some of these plants and flowers I know well and I often use in my wedding work but others are new to me and it is so exciting to think how I’ll be able to use them.

I’m not growing roses or dahlias as I can buy such amazing varieties through sustainable sources. I want to grow the wispy whimsical, light and airy flowers that you just can’t buy but they can transform any flower arrangement into something magical.

Yesterday for the first time this year some of those seeds I bought got popped in to some dark rich damp soil to hopefully pop their heads out in a few weeks time and when the frost are all over will get planted out and grow into strong plants in the cutting plot.
