Hello I’m Ruth – I love to work with the seasons and the wide variety of British flowers to bring fresh flowers to local people and local businesses!
When I am most happy is in the flower field in my welly boots, digging, sowing seeds, selecting and picking flowers, observing and reacting with nature.
Flowers can be collected by arrangement from the plot in Oversley Green, Alcester near Stratford upon Avon or delivered locally.
Seasonal and Scented
A wide variety of summer flowers and foliage will be grown to include a range of colours, scent and textures throughout the season. Flowers will be available from June through to the frosts in October.
I am passionate about the environment and believe strongly in sustainability, biodiversity and low travel mileage. It is my pleasure to grow flowers without any chemicals – no herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or fertilisers. Flowers that have no air miles and in some cases delivered by electric vehicle, so no pollution either.
Our two bee hives share the flower garden, they too like the variety of flowers and benefit from no chemicals – and on good years we will also be able to share the honey!
Minimal waste and packaging
I aim to have the minimum of packaging, no cellophane and foam free flowers. We minimise waste and use recycled items where possible. All the leaves and waste green material will be composted on site and put back onto the beds the following year.
(Yes – please save your jam jars! I am always looking for jam jars (large and small) and different vases so if you are passing you are welcome to drop them off – thank you! )
