Hi there , it’s now November and it’s still warm! We’ve had no frost, so far, which keeps a few plants in flower. Although the rain has flattened pretty much everything else!
Well the website has been updated www.bouquetsandbutterflies.co.uk so I’m very excited about that. I am now doing flower growing and arranging workshops . I’ll be adding more dates as time goes on so if you’d like to know more please sign up for a newsletter… Don’t worry I won’t bomdard you with tons of emails!
Also 2200 tulip, daffodil and camassia bulbs have been planted in various parts of the garden
Here’s our Dog, Maisie, resisting the temptation to dig them all up!!!
What’s available flower wise ?
Snapdragons, dahlias , foliage, asters and the odd rose but our season is now finished until April . However, the colours of Autumn are great so I’m using lots of leaves in arrangements as a bit of an experiment. Photos of this later !
Things to do in the garden…..
Sow Sweet peas in the greenhouse
Clear all the beds and apply manure
Tackle the squirrel problem with organic spray …I’ll keep you posted
Wash all the pots in bleach ready for the spring
Pot up seedlings that are looking pot bound
Cut back the perennials and tidy any shrubs apart from the evergreen ones where the foliage will come in handy for wreath making at Christmas!
Lastly a few photos from my patch…..
Next blog, I’ll post my Autumn and Christmas bouquets! Happy gardening, flower arranging or Christmas shopping!!!!
