Explore Be Ready, The Winter and more!

This time last year the hellebores were looking amazing. This January they are nowhere near as far on. The winter has been much colder so I presume that's the reason. One of the things I've found hardest with this job is predicting what will be ready when - a constant reminder that it's nature not me who's in control. #hellebore #winterflowers #season #winter #flowergrower

There are hellebores out... #hellebore #hellebores #winterflowers

There are hellebores out.

The last few weeks have been about getting essential admin done and the polytunnels planted up. But today I was outside at last. First job was to cut the leaves back on the hellebores. They are late this year but all the more valued for it.

Now the café has closed for the season we'll be shut on Sundays as well as Mondays. Open as usual Tuesday to Saturday 10-4.  I'm not sure how long the flowers will go on for. I'm hoping we can keep going until the end of October but it's all feeling so so autumnal. Sometimes I think we fight nature a bit too much. Isn't that the very opposite of what we're trying to do? When it's time to succumb I'll let you know.  #endofseason #autumn #stylingtheseasons #openinghours #finallyigetaweekend

Cynoglossum 'Mystery Rose'. I'm becoming obsessed with it.  I'm putting it with everything.  Next year I will go off it and ask myself why we ever grew it. I can never pace myself.  #instaflower #cynoglossum #mysteryrose #flowerobsession #fickle #thisyearslove

In the polytunnel the other day I came across some self-sown seedlings of lathyrus sativus romping away. If you've never grown Indian sweet pea I'd make this the year to rectify that. It may not have the fragrance of other sweet peas but it's turquoise. Yes turquoise! Be still my beating heart... #indiansweetpea #lathyrussativus #flowerstodiefor
