Cutting Garden News

Early September is already upon us, and even for this time, it is feeling distinctly Autumnal.

Weddings are back and we are preparing for a couple in the next few weeks - the former of which is finally happening after two postponements.

Bridge 14 of the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union canal is our location if you are ever passing on your narrow boat, and there have been the odd beautiful historic boat passing here slowly.

A visit from the swans and the cygnets has been a tow path highlight, as has cutting flowers for drying. 

That shift in weather, that everyone knows about who grows anything, is the reason for our Fierce live Online classes. Our brand new season of sustainable classes for 2H 2021 continues our Nature and Nurture theme.

Everlasting flowers and wreaths is our fierce focus for these autumn and winter classes. While the sun still shines, we have fresh flowers that follow the seasons here, but when the nights start to draw in, we create with what has been hanging from the beams in our drafty Wharf, the most perfect place for drying everlasting flowers. I am delighted to welcome back so many familiar faces, as well as visiting, virtually for now, other parts of the world we currently are unable to reach by any other means. Click to find out more about the programme and book your virtual seat.

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. We have been active over on our YouTube Channel with a number of videos on drying your summer bounty for everlasting dried flowers and bouquet-making.  These are also accessible via the blog.

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.

Wedding Flowers

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.

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.
