Cutting Garden News
There is frost on the roof of the Shepherds hut as the mist rises from the canal. April is always the trickiest of months for growing, for it catches us off guard in our new found lighter days.
Luckily, most planted autumn bulbs are weather hardy and it is only the blossom that suffers.
Our magnolia always seems to time her run with the most glorious of days only to be cut by the ice in the cold morning. Sometimes that is the way of things.
The one constant in gardening and growing is you are always learning. No year is ever exactly the same. There are always new ways advocated, different varieties.
There are some reliable constants that are, in these times, a comfort. Chief among these this year has been the scent of narcissi wafting over the garden from all the bulbs we planted last Autumn. I'm resolved to grow even more next year.

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.
