I’m passionate about growing and all aspects of horticulture and during a wet summer a couple of years ago I decided I wanted to grow flowers. I had trained as a florist and I felt terribly guilty arranging flowers with such a large carbon footprint. So I dug up a small patch in my field, put up a polytunnel and started from there.
In the first year I couldn’t believe how many bees, insects and butterflies there were in the plot ... hence the name “Bouquets and Butterflies”!
I grow old fashioned English flowers such as delphiniums, snapdragons, cornflowers, sunflowers and larkspur. As the flowers are seasonal, you won't find hydrangeas in your spring bouquets or tulips in summer ones!
