Hello my name is Helen, I have been growing cut flowers for a few years now it started for personal use but as we moved to a new property with a meadow it was the next step for me to grow and share beautiful flowers with people who appreciate the English garden look and enjoy waiting for truly seasonal and scented fresh cut blooms.
My meadow is situated on the Suffolk and Norfolk boarder in the heart of the Waveney valley near the quaint town of Harleston. The growing season is between March to October, although work is carried out all year round.
When buying our property we were lucky to have bought a garden and meadow that had not been landscaped and was virgin green grass and a lot of thistles untouched and unloved. Previously my career was in marketing based in London, and looking for a career change as well as just bringing two small children into the world, now was the perfect place and time to set about plans for growing and raising children and flowers.
I grown on about an acre, I have 3 gardens and are split into the formal gardens that grows mostly perennials, spring and summer bulbs and the Meadow is where most of the hard work takes place and I have laid this out into a French Potager style ready to grow seasonal high quality fresh cut flowers from annuals, perennials, bi annuals, herbs and bulbs.
I provide mixed seasonal flowers direct from the meadow to people who enjoy gifting bunches that are fresh pick in the free and easy garden collected look. I can also be found at Wyken vineyard farmers market where i have a weekly residency between April and October as well as the many fabulous events held by the Blackdog Events at Glemham hall and Riddlesworth hall as well as Sotterly Estate. I also provide weekly subscriptions to local businesses and homes, as well as flowers for the weekend for ladies who love flowers for their homes for the weekend and a few selected PYO dates. I also do plant and bulb (when available) sales to those who want to create their own cutting garden and post regular news about all of this on my facebook where daily life rolls out and Instagram just for the posher pictures.
