Spring, growing your own and composting, and Mother’s Day

Spring is now truly upon us with new shoots sprouting up everywhere. Whilst cutting some of our hellebores yesterday afternoon for a private event in the evening, I was almost deafened from the beautiful bird song ringing out in the hedgerows. It was quite magical. Spring is my favourite season of the year as it always reminds me of new life alongside new beginnings. I still get quite a buzz from seeing a plant appear following seed sowing, even after all these years and the many plants we have raised. Talking of which it looks like the temperatures are taking a nose dive again so we will have to ensure our baby seedlings are well protected.

There are still spaces remaining on next Saturday’s compost workshop if you know of anyone that would like to come along. Next month, I will be running a Grow-Your-Own workshop for anyone that is a novice and would like to get inspired to grow your own. I will be giving out handy tips on how to get started as well as providing some seedlings and seeds to start you off.

This week, Christine, Rosie and myself will be busy preparing the produce, plants and flowers for Mother’s Day. We will be having our beautiful dainty hellebores bunched up in bouquets, potted spring plants and some tasty jam and marmalades gift wrapped for the occasion. If any of our delivery customers would like anything please just email me. As Friday will be Comic Relief Red Nose Day, there will be bakes on sale with the proceeds going to the charity.
