Cutting Garden News

Bulb planting is in full flow as we race through October already. Optimistically, the Christmas paperwhites are guarded against the oh so efficient squirrels. Autumnal dahlia labelling is underway as the first frost is sure to be soon.

Over on my YouTube Channel, I share the daffodil and tulip varieties we are planting this year, and the advice I share about how and where it is best to plant them in a cut flower garden.  Do subscribe here if you'd like to hear about more of our cutting garden exploits.

The last of the flowers are almost gone, with only a few hanging up to dry from the beams in our Wharf. Bridge 14 is within sight as we have been clearing adjacent to the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union Canal, our canalside location. We'll be sharing the nostalgia of our lovely 19th Wharf when we show how to create a dried flower wreath in our online classes. Sign up here to find up here to book your place with us. We'd love to welcome you back or see new faces from all over our precious planet.

A visit from our hedge cutter is the highlight of this month so far. His vintage tractor is pristine and small enough to fit through the gates and flower beds in our paddock. Cake is always popular with him!

Although our fresh local British cut flower season has ended, we are still able to create wedding flowers. Dried flower bouquets created with our everlasting sustainable flowers are a trend that shows no sign of abating. If you're interested in learning what you can grow and dry, do have a look at our  blog .

Autumn is a great time to start your cut flower garden so we have germinated our sweet peas for next season's spring planting, and the ranunculus and anemones are underway too. 

I confess I am looking forward to lighting the fire, and hopefully I'll see you at one of our live online classes for Autumn, or for Christmas.

Everlasting Heart Shaped Dried Flower Wreath - Cariad Tragwyddol

Everlasting Love - a heart-shaped dried flower wreath created by artisan florist fierceblooms. Hand crafted using my own naturally dried sustainable British cut flowers, nigella seedpods, alchemilla mollis and helichrysum all grown in my Cheshire cutting garden and air dried in my drafty 19th century Wharf. The finished wreath is approximately 50cm (20") tall by 40cm (16") wide.

Summer bouquet


A 19th century historic wharf and Cheshire canalside cutting garden is the inspiration for our wild garden style ethos. I root my floral design in every precious fleeting seasonal moment, growing and creating only ever with local seasonal scented British flowers.

If sustainability matters to you, if you care that floral creations are as kind to the environment as they are beautiful, then I am a kindred spirit.

We share our artisan florals in our live online virtual flower classes, and with our flowers, create bouquets and undertake a few intimate Cheshire weddings a year.
