Flower and Foilage Farm
A Creative and Floral Easter
I took a little time this Easter to play with my own flowers and get a bit creative. I used to spend hours flower arraging as a teen using anything and and everthing. I made the table arrangements when my parents had a dinner party, (the only time they would buy me flowers!) and if I had not sutdied Landscape Architecture I would have gone down this route. Well now I am growing the flowers and I hope the foilage for the floral industry in the UK and in fact anyone who wants to buy directly from me.
🌿My daffodils after a late start are now blooming and have been sold in many local shops. Now Cheerfullness it out too! The wee little flowers, the delcious sent. I just love them!
🥀 When the light shines through the head of nodding Snakeshead Fritilary they are stunning. They do not last as long in the vase as a the narcissus but if you want something special and not yellow these chaps are for you.
🌿Lamium, or the dead nettle is a suprising winner. This is a stem that complements bolder flowers but brings with it the delciate white ‘slippers’ that circle the stem. A native its being visited by all the bees out on the wing now. So like the Snakeshead Fritillaries I grow it for you and for the bees and I never pick all of the plant
