Seasonal flowers fresh from the fields near Gillingham & Shaftesbury
In the spring of 2014 we were fortunate enough to move into ‘The Old Chapel’ which is set in about 1.5 acres of land overlooking fabulous and ever changing views of the Dorset countryside. The ‘micro holding’ came complete with 2 large growing poly tunnels, originally in complete disrepair and in need of major refurbishment. Determined to make use of the tunnels we decided that they would be ideal for growing early blooming flowers and producing seedlings for the coming summer season. This gave us the exciting opportunity to develop a hobby/passion (growing cottage garden style British flowers) into a small business.
Several months, and many hours of hard work later the first of the tunnels was refurbished and re-skinned ready for the coming season. The first plants to claim a home were autumn sown sweet peas closely followed by pot grown hyacinths and sumptuous renunculas. Following additions included scabious, larkspur, cosmos, and zinnias to name a few.
In addition to our polytunnel and garden patch, we have now spread out further into raised beds both outdoors and under plastic, and a new wild flower patch. We are now looking forward to a very fruitful and productive year producing a large variety of quintessential cottage style flowers and foliage ready to be cut ‘fresh from the field’.
