It will soon be spring, my favourite time of year! I love the newness of it all, the endless possibilities and the extra light it brings, it’s also the time I start to lay down all my plans and this year and I have big plans! You see last year most of our flower crop was grown on our flower plot in the next village and whilst it still will be this year too (I need every bit of space going) we’ve decided to turn our side garden at The Haven into a show garden for our customers to enjoy. This space will show what you can do with a relatively small garden, it will have four formal beds, one being a potager, another, my husbands jewel garden (mini Monty style), the third will be my cool cottage garden bed and the last purely for cut flowers. This area will be where my students can pick their own flowers and will also be open later in the year for my subscribers to enjoy whilst sampling my homemade cakes.
We are also doing a bit of shuffling about right at the front of the house to provide a permanent area for garden gate sales. We will still have our pop-up stall in Ampthill throughout the year but I wanted to be able to provide you with flowers, cottage garden plants and vegetables throughout the rest of the week. Make sure you’ve subscribed to our news and events to be the first to know when we are up and running!
I’m also planning some lovely workshops for the year which will take place in the garden or my workshop. As always you can customise workshops to suit you, please see our workshops page for further info.
Don’t forget there is still time to order your Mothers Day bouquet! Available for collection only, see the shop page to see how to order yours.
Wishing you a lovely week.
Emma & Richard.
