Cutting Garden News
It has taken a while for the Summer to truly get going but now July is hot hot hot.
There's a frisson of excitement, and nerves in all truthfulness, here, for July is the month of the RHS Tatton Flower Show and I'll be exhibiting at it.
My Moongate exhibit "For The Love Of Nature" (Exhibit No 628 in the Flower School marquee) is naturally inspired by our Cheshire canalside cut flower garden.
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. Suddenly, everything is bursting to floral life after an odd start to the season.
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 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. These are also accessible via the blog.

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.
