Last year, the tree branches were dancing in the winter weather, all whoosing and wild. This year, there is still and fog and ice cold sodden soil in our winter flower cutting garden.
As the last few days of January end, I am reminded that nothing lasts forever. Not the dark, not the damp, or anything else for that matter. This is the point you have to keep the faith in your frozen, muddy cut flower garden. This is the point you dream of spring.
We are busy though in the garden we grow our local Cheshire flowers. Winter is the time I remind myself of the advantage of creating dried everlasting flowers in our still draughty 19th century Cheshire Wharf. Our cutting garden, which inspires our wild garden style, may be resting but we are excited and getting everything ready for the new wild garden style spring season.
The worms are already working in our new “no dig” beds. The autumn sown sweet peas are yearning to be planted out, while other sweet peas will be sown now, and more later to have scented sustainable flowers all summer long. Patience and timing are key to a successful seed germination and plants surviving in the wild cut flower garden.
We continue to honour our environmental floral principles by never using anything flown in. We’ll be using our garden grown British cut flowers to create and craft, to commune and communicate. The fierce endeavour remains to always only ever British cut flowers and in our online classes, live broadcasted from our 19th century Wharf. We are heartened by the interest and support that feels stronger every year for scented, seasonal sustainable florals for our Cheshire weddings.
We're an environmentally conscious local floral business rooted in our wild Cheshire canal side cut flower garden, inspiring our weddings, workshops and creative digital online classes. 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.

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.
