This is always our favourite time of year. This week we started picking our Stocks, Delphiniums & Snapdragons. If it wasn’t so cold it would feel like summer!
The weather plays an important role in all of our lives but when you’re growing flowers the weather rules all. The unusually warm March gave all our crops an early boost that has helped them to produce probably the best quality flowers we’ve had for many years. But the cold weather of late has slowed down production and stalled some of the crops from flowering on time which is not ideal when the next batch of plants in the rotation are due to be planted in that house next week.
More sunshine please!!!
On the Wholesale side of the business the wedding season is really kicking in early this year. This has been our busiest April I can remember for weddings, hopefully a good sign that things are picking up.
