We had a fabulous 2021 cut flower season and a huge 'Thank you' to everyone who bought our 'Devon grown' fresh and dried flowers. It is so encouraging to find so many people supporting the British grown flower movement.
Planning for 2022:
Now that the Christmas is behind us, attention has turned to developing new areas in the cottage garden and expanding the beds in the cutting garden - a great way to shift the Xmas pounds! The months up to March will all be focused on making sure we are all set up to supply you with beautiful cottage garden flowers and grasses through to the end of October.
Seed sowing for 2022 began in September 2021 and the first annuals are being potted on or planted into the polytunnel ready for the start of the season, which kicks off with Mothers Day on 27th March 2022. Orders for bouquets and arrangements can be made through the 'Contact' page.
We started supplying wedding flowers this year and with a number of weddings booked in for 2022, this side of the flower farm is set to expand. One of the things that is such a joy is sharing the development of the flowers with our wedding clients.
Today, I had a visit from a client who has had regular photo updates of how her chosen flowers are doing- a full 'from seed to wedding' service. It was so much fun showing her the flowers at their early stage of development, knowing that these tiny seedlings will turn into the 2000 plus flowers for her wedding in June (everything crossed).
So, as 2021 comes to an end and the Xmas wreath making kit is packed away, the anticipation of another lovely year of fresh cut flowers looms. I can't wait to share the cottage garden flowers with both regular and new customers alike.
Have a Happy New Year and see you in 2022.
Thank you again for your support through 2021.
