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. The perfect place to set about plans for growing and raising flowers.
I use about a third of the acre so far to grow flowers and the gardens are split into two, the formal garden 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, bi annuals, herbs and bulbs.
Growing organic without chemicals I use a good flock of chicken who do a great job picking pests as well as an army of ladybug that live around the meadow, most work is done by hand.
I provide mixed seasonal flowers direct from the meadow to local people who enjoy gifting bunches that are fresh pick in the free and easy garden collected look. I can also be found at a number of Farmers markets and provide weekly subscriptions to local businesses.
