Cutting Garden News
I watched the sunrise today. The first day of June has arrived somewhat unexpectedly but the light! The light is healing.
And while we may have been a wee bit quiet of late on Instagram, I can assure you there's been quite a bit going on behind the scenes.
In our live online virtual classes, we love to share how the seasonality of our canalside cutting garden inspires the wild garden style bouquets I create. You no longer need to be close to Church Minshull to join us. Our summer bouquet classes are booking for the end of June. A new series is being planned. If there's something you're particularly interested in though, do let me know.
Our eucalyptus orchard is planted, and we, I say we but it is the Scot who has done the engineering work, now have a new series of three terraced beds on our steepest part of our canalside cutting garden. We have met the edge of our wild flower meadow and will go no further.
Mainly though, it has been keeping everything alive in the oddest of springs, and at last now, with the passing of the very late May frosts, I am planting.
All the raised beds have names here, and so it is we have four "lockdown" beds created last year. No explanation required of course but what I plan to share is what they are planted with. Our new YouTube channel is where we will share what is happening in our canalside cutting garden.
Growing a cutting garden takes time. Not only is there the need to learn about growing, but more so, I think the learning is about what loves to grow where you are, and what you love to create with.

I felt like I was there. I just couldn't reach out and stick my nose in the flowers. It was as if I was sat in your front room watching your creativeness.

O ur Cheshire Wedding flowers are gathered from our canalside cutting garden so you can celebrate your wedding with sustainable flowers that capture the seasonal moment of your unique day.
Romantic wild garden style floral designs include utterly bespoke bouquets, uniquely different flower crowns and beautiful buttonholes for small intimate Cheshire weddings.
If it matters to you to have eco friendly wedding flowers for your marriage, flowers with scent and season, and a love and respect for the environment they are grown in, we'd love to hear from you.
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.
