Hello my name is Helen, I have been growing cut flowers for a few years now. Growing started for personal use, but as we moved to a 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 the land had not been landscaped and was virgin green grass and a lot of thistles and nettles, 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, 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 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 many of the stately homes around in Suffolk and Norfolk. I can also be found at Goodies food hall and farm shop between Diss and Long Stratton. All venues I sell weekly bouquets and plants for the garden.
I post regular news about all the flowers rolling out through the year on my facebook and Instagram .
