We had a little cutting session in the garden over the weekend. The Cart is now overflowing with Peonies, British roses and Poppies in lovely old jam pots. A fitting floral tribute for the close of  #BritishFlowersWeek. What’s your favourite bloom? #flowers #flowerdisplay #peonies #britishrose #oldalbion #gardening #garden #inspiredbynature_ #longbarn #alresford #winchester

The flowers 🌺 in the gardens 🌿 @tmporthcurno were a joy 😊on Saturday. They had had a very good watering 💦 with all this rain ☔️ we’ve been having! We were also treated to surprise sunshine ☀️ and 💙 blue skies 🌞 there too. I also learnt poppies aren’t only red 🌸 - who knew 🤷‍♀️ I’ve said it before and I’ll say again, the Telegraph Museum here is brilliant - interesting and immersive for old and young alike. The beach 🏖 there is stunning and the amazing @minacktheatre 🎭 is just round the cliffs. It’s about 20 minutes from @myrtlehousepenzance but with all the overcrowding on the narrow windy country roads midsummer the last few years, I’d say bus 🚌 would be the way to go for a more relaxed journey and help the planet 🌍 too 💚

What a wet week it’s been... typical for #britishflowersweek ... typical British weather!! Here’s hoping for some summer sun again soon. Thank you to everyone who entered and to all of you for supporting our family business. The winner has been messaged, keep tuned for future flowery updates and projects in the pipeline... I’m thinking of a set number of weeks flower subscription service (reduced rates for bouquets for a weekly smile) watch this space. #grownnotflown #familybusiness #shoplocal #britishflowers #futureprojects

How to make the most of your garden - whatever the weather - and to treasure every stem you can cut, was at the heart of my seasonal summer class during #britishflowersweek And as we spent most of the day inside we explored how to see your workspace in a new light. Sunday night and I found this beautiful image of my summer raised bowl demonstration made on Wednesday in my inbox by @brittwilldyer (earthy beautiful speckled bowl @chloecharringtonpottery

#britishflowersweek has drawn to a close - & what a challenge the last seven days will have been for growers & gardeners alike.
The one good thing about stems weighed down with rain, is that those unable to recover can be snipped & plunged into a vase. Brought inside they give a snapshot of the fabulous blooms our mad British weather lets us grow. We are very lucky. #lupin #foxglove #opiumpoppy #peony #hardygeranium #englishgarden #flowers

Back home now after spending today at the @gardenmuseum in London with the lovely and oh-so knowledgeable Camila and Marianne from @wolveslaneflowercompany at a flower workshop.

We learned how to sow seeds, when to plant out, and how to cut, condition and present flowers. My favourite 'takeaway' from today is that gardening and growing needn't be elitist, it can be totally accessible and affordable when you start from scratch with seeds. This approch has an added bonus - extra satisfaction when it comes to picking, just like homegrown fruit and veg.

Here's the bouquet I made, composed entirely of British grown, chemical free flowers, plus a few weeds, which I think are beautiful! I somehow made it home on the tube carrying this, with no mishaps!

Finishing off #britishflowersweek with a wedding. This is usually the time of year when we can start cutting in quantity from our field and garden and it always helps when the brides goes for blues, lilacs, pink and white as these colours are truly seasonal for June. I’m particularly proud of these delphiniums grown from seed last year. We transplanted them to a new area of the field and they have produced huge stems, in perfect condition despite a lot of rain. I’m low on pink shades and grey foliages so very grateful to @carolsiddorn for topping up with some beautiful stuff from her plot. Looking forward to a summer full of #britishflowers weddings, it’s going to be a busy one!

If we could have them all year round would we get as excited by the all round fluffy scented gorgeousness of these wonderful blooms? When they look as good as this I doubt it..... #flosflowerbox #weddingflorist #peonies #peonyseason #milkurnflowers #weddingflowers #miltonkeynes #woburnsands #BritishFlowersWeek

That’s a wrap! 🎬 Today #BritishFlowersWeek 2019 comes to an end and what a week it has been. A massive thank you from everyone at New Covent Garden Market to every florist, wholesaler, grower and customer who supported the campaign. This year’s celebration of the UK flower industry has seen some incredible workshops, panel discussions, exhibitions, displays, competitions and book launches unite the nation with a love for home-grown blooms 🙌
.
Amongst the excitement, Defra announced that the sales of British flowers make up for 14% of all flowers sold in the UK. British Flowers Week has been integral to this surge and is evidence that the future is bright for UK cut flowers, plants and foliage ☀️ See you all next year for British Flowers Week 2020! .

Hard to believe this was a whole year ago.

Meet our favourite Snapdragon variety. This is Pink Trumpets and unlike traditional Antirrhihums, this one has open funnel shaped flowers rather than the ‘snapping’ blooms. This is a taller variety anyway but in our polytunnel, where the plants don’t have to grow shorter and sturdy to withstand the battering effects of wind and rain, and where the polythene filters the light, they grow lovely long stems like these. 
There are other Snapdragons like these, in particular, the Chantilly series. Later this summer, we’re trialing Chantilly Bronze and Chantilly Strawberry Fool Mix. The bronze is meant to be especially stunning. Can’t wait!

I was going to do a fathers day post, but courage failed me. I’ll save it for another time and share with you some flowers from the wayward garden instead. It’s been #britishflowersweek this last week so it’s fitting. I took pity on the rain-drooped rose and, as you can see, the hairymarys (now in seed) have got to star alongside.
Vase is the large mug by @jackmcgonigleceramics that I bought back (safely) from my hols.
Back to jewellery this week.
