Does anyone else feel like March flew by at great speed? April is here and spring really feels like it's ramping up. Inbetween the rain clouds the sun feels warm and nourishing and the garden is responding by sprouting it's first green shoots of fresh growth. March sees a shift from the long nights of winter with more daylight and lighter evenings. Here on the farm the lambs and calves are being born and so much new life is emerging.



March brought with it a rather exciting engagement, our very own Emily and her lovely partner Ryan! I couldn't be more pleased and excited for them, they really are made for each other. Another wedding to plan later this year- so very very exciting!! The mood boards and creative juices are already at full flow!!

Fresh flower season is back and we couldn't be happier! Our mother day creations were full of all the joys of Spring- Tulips, Narcissi & Blossom. We had a lovely day in Emily's newly created workshop whilst her recent additions to the chicken flock pecked and rummaged nearby. Thank you so much to all our customers who ordered for their lovely Mums. It is always such a privilege creating for and delivering bouquets to such special family members.

The garden bulbs are popping ready for our first wedding in April. We have a variety of Muscari in shades of blues & white and variations of Narcissi. 'Sir Winston Churchill', 'Pink Charm, 'Watch up', 'Replete' and 'Thalia' are amongst the varieties we have growing in our cutting gardens this year. Some of the bulbs were planted last year and lack of space meant we were forced to dig them up before their foliage had faded (it's important to wait so that the energy is restored back to the bulb for future flowering.) The bulbs were then re-planted in the autumn and we were surprised and happy to find them quickly recovered and flowering again this Spring.

The Autumn sown seedlings have begun to be planted outside and although they have been tested by the elements somewhat they are so far surviving! Seeds sown in January and February are busy strengthening and sprouting strong roots in individual pots, it won't be too much longer until they too are planted into position. April will see some of our more fragile seeds sown, such as Zinnia's, Asters and Sunflowers, so lets hope for a month of warm sunny weather. It won't be long until the Ranunculus begin to bloom too. After a successful year in the poly tunnel last year we have followed that success and hope for another in the undercover bed this year.

Next week during the Easter Weekend we are creating for our first wedding of the year. We can't wait to share our photos with you all, think soft and dusty blues, fresh foliage, creams, fresh whites, delicate blossom and plenty of texture. This will be our first April wedding and we can't wait to create with all the beauty of early Spring.




Thanks for reading and have a wonderful April.
