Look out for some beautiful anemones when my mail order season starts in a couple of weeks, particularly some spectacular albino white forms and deepest velvety red. They will make their first appearance here in Mother's Day bouquets, which will be available to order from March 1st. I will send out bouquets including Cornish flowers on Thursdays and Fridays to ensure they are as fresh as my own.
My aim this year is to supply bouquets that even the most attentive gardener will find interesting. One of the great and good gardeners (but to my shame I can't recall which one) once said that a salad should always have at least ten different varieties of leaf and flower in it. I'm aiming to do the same with our flowers, trying to ensure that there are at least ten different types of flower in each bunch. I believe it is this personal touch that encourages people to choose our flowers rather than more mainstream options, and the advantage of growing our own is that we can ensure that wide variety, and can ensure that everything is freshly picked to condition for a day before moving out. The flowers we are bringing in from Cornwall arrive here within a day of being picked so they are also as fresh as can be.
And the website should finally be largely updated next week ready for the season's start, there will be a load more gallery pictures so people can really see what's going on here.
