‘to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow’ — Audrey HepburnHello friend! I promised to write to you before the year ended. All I really wanted to say was thank you. Many of you have made what has been a personally challenging year so much brighter, more rewarding, and so full of loving, human connection. Some of the most nourishing and fuelling moments have come from connecting with you; I love the emails I receive from you, I love hearing about your life, your work with nature, your wins and losses in growing. I love seeing the arrangements you make, your thoughts on the book, and the bl ..read more

Wreaths in the Newspaper!

The first frosts arrived at last and are so heavy they look like a light dusting of snow. We’ve moved from a mild, barely-there Autumn to a beautiful Winter in one cold swoop. It’s been a fortnight of harvesting evergreens, hot water bottles up jumpers, merry wreath making and Christmas installs. Busy. Chilly. Heaven. I love the work at this time of year; it feels simpler, happier. A time of head and hands stuck in a pine-scented wonderland. Wreath Kits The wreath-kits have been making their way to you, and this coming week sees the last set heading out. They’ve had a mention in the Financial ..read more

Late December & The First Frosts

Notes From The Field We’ve been waiting for this moment; the frosts have arrived. Finally. Joyfully. And with it they’ve bought a deep cleansing to the ground, an encouragement to the leaves to do their falling, and that ethereal beauty that is saved only for Winter. It’s been a sharp -5 overnight, the landscape has been decorated in glittering ice. The watering of the overwintering seedlings is happening only sparingly, ensuring that we don’t water in the afternoon or evening before a frost to stop us running the risk of freezing their tiny roots in their cell pots. We’ve left the hardy annua ..read more

Early December

Notes From The Field I can’t tell where the time has gone this year. I know it’s slipping through my fingers at a rapid pace now that the light is falling so early. Come the end of the day, it’s not even close to the real end of the day and I hardly feel prepared for the dark when it arrives, it feels so sudden. I’m planting crocus, iris reticulata, and muscari this week, perhaps a little late- daffodils too, and the bulbs complaining a little by one of two going squidgy, but they’ll be just fine. It’s getting to the tulip planting moment too- the first few proper cold snaps have come and so i ..read more

Notes From The Field When the clocks went back, a funny sense of relief washed through me, as though somehow the longer nights meant I could allow myself to crawl into bed at a laughably early hour and let my deep exhaustion be cradled by the onset of darkness. It’s been a wild, wild year in so many ways, and never before have I been more excited for Winter. Paris and I have been pricking out and potting on seedlings and now we’re practically swimming in them; trays here, there, and everywhere. We have grand plans of expansion to ensure that every seedling will have a home to grow into, but ..read more

Wreath Season

“Our world is run in circles- rippling in a pond, a full moon rising, the ever expanding rings of a tree. And so, having come full circle in the seasons, I think there’s no better way to celebrate the passing of the year than with a wreath. " -From Seed to Bloom The clocks changed and with that the rhythm of winter has returned. Longer nights, a delicious layer of dark, and the cold finally settling in. It’s the time of warm jumpers, thicker socks and tucking ourselves up under blankets. I’m looking at evergreen trees in a whole new way- I do this every year, I forget their majesty and shad ..read more

The Return of The Seed Shop & Notes From the Field

The hot and dry weather we experienced this season might not have been the best for many of the flowers and the green spaces up and down the country, or for the creeping anxiety about the climate, but it has certainly been amazing for the seeds this year; there has been a bumper seed crop from the field- the best yet. As well as the seeds harvested from here, to get you all the very best varieties I’ve bought in a few of the prettiest varieties from a couple of trusted suppliers, and I think the collection is now the best it’s ever been. One of the best things about the varieties in the seed ..read more

Firstly, I’m so excited to announce two workshops in May 2022 to celebrate the launch of From Seed to Bloom - you’ll have a chance to get your hands on an early special edition copy of From Seed to Bloom at them too! One workshop is on May 5th in at Cowdray in West Sussex, and the second is on May 19th at Daylesford in Gloucestershire. They both promise to be two, quite different workshops but equally beautiful, fun, and informative. I really hope you can join me at one of them! ————————- WORKSHOPS ————————- Cowdray Midhurst, West Sussex May 5th 10:00 am – 12:30 pm Access Booking For Cowdray ..read more
