This time of year is very much gardening time for me. I’m a fair weather gardener, and this month has certainly been fair!
Behind the agapanthus are some calendula, cornflowers and lavender, which all can be dried and used in potpourri making.
I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a big box of dried heather flowers from Scotland. This Scottish heather is beautiful in four colours, but quite tricky to work with. It was a case of seeing what shape and size it came in, and making bunches to match. There is no point in fighting nature!
These small lucky heather bunches, and some mini heather bunches which could be used as napkin decorations or buttonholes, are now available in the shop. They are both already proving popular for weddings. We supplied one small bunch last week to a bride who asked for an extra length of ribbon to tie onto the main bridal bouquet for luck!
Living in hope for another month of sunshine!
