Hello I’m Ruth – I have a flower plot and a little dream. I love to work with the seasons and grow a wide variety of British flowers to bring fresh flowers to florists and local people!
When I am most happy is in the flower field in my boots, sowing seeds, selecting and picking flowers, observing and reacting with nature.
My passion for flowers has developed more than I ever envisaged, I love being creative with flowers, designing arrangements big and small for special occasions.
I primarily use my own flowers and work closely with other growers. During winter I may source other flowers to meet specific requests.
Seasonal and scented
A wide variety of summer flowers and foliage are specifically selected so they last well in the vase, have a lovely long stem length, include the English country garden favorites and some interesting new varieties and colours.
Flowers are at their best in the right conditions, often influenced by day length and/or temperature.
So in the British climate in cool temperatures of spring it is the tulips, narcissi, ranunculus and anemone are at their best.
As it warms up and we have lovely long summer days cosmos, snapdragons, cornflower bring a riot of colour.
At the end of summer and the autumn draws in the rich autumn tones dahlias, zinnia, strawflowers and chrysanthemums
The flowers are carefully selected to ensure there is a beautiful collection of colours, scent and textures throughout the season from April through to the frosts in October.
I am passionate about the environment and believe strongly in sustainability, biodiversity and low carbon and low travel miles. It is my pleasure to grow flowers without any chemicals – no herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or artificial fertilisers. My plot is a haven for bees, butterflies and ladybirds and allows nature to keep the balance.
Care for the environment
The business practices are being refined and improved all the time to reduce any impact on the environment;
- minimal packaging which can be composted or recycled
- sustainable floral designs without using floral foam or cellophane
- organic growing methods are used on the flower plot without artificial fertilizers or chemicals
- care for the soil with all green waste material is composted on site and put back onto the flower beds the following year
- dried flowers are naturally dried without bleaches and dyes
- local delivery by electric vehicle
Please save your large coffee jars and pickle jars….. I can recycle them!
