Autumn, or fall as they call it in North America, is a busy time of year for a cut flower garden. Alongside sowing hardy annuals and a general tidy up for winter, planting daffodil bulbs or narcissi is a major activity in our canalside cutting garden.
We plant 1000s each year and in this video, I recommend a few of my favourite daffodils which you can grow to make your own spring garden grown bouquets. I also share my 7 key points for ideal growing, planting and conditioning, as well and how to choose the optimum varieties for your floral designs.
Although daffodils are traditionally yellow, in this video, I share the very many other shapes and sizes, as well as softer colour palettes including pale lemons and whites that you may like to grow for your cut flower garden.
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.
Floral Classes For 2022
We are plotting and planning, exploring and investigating floral classes for 2022.
Always, our fierce focus is to share how we create our signature "Wild garden Style" floral designs using local, scented, seasonal and sustainable flowers.
In fact. we only ever use local, garden grown (in our case) British flowers. Our desire is in every class to inspire you to create your own planet friendly, environmentally conscious floral designs using ingredients that reflect your season, your flora and your locale.
Rather than a constraint, we believe creating with your own seasonal garden grown flowers encourages you to make floral art that truly embodies your own unique floral signature.
2022 is our 3rd season of live online classes. We look forward to continued conversations with sustainable floral enthusiasts from the far flung Scotland Highlands, down to Devon and Cornwall, across to Wales, and way beyond to North America, Australia, New Zealand.

Online Flower Class Testimonial
The wreath class on Sunday was excellent. It was fascinating to watch your technique step by step, to hear you explain so carefully how passionate you are about sustainability, and always so cheerfully and with such an appreciation for nature.
