Day 5 #floweringontogether Challenge FAVE MAKE ...... This spring bouquet designed more than 4 years ago is still one of my all time favourites - I always come back to it with its trailing Jasmine, a touch of Asparagus fern, clusters of ranunculus, succulents, Skimmia nestling amongst the Roses and a sprinkling of Astrantia ....Love it

Cream, white and green bouquets from a beautiful, throwback wedding 💙 #sharingtheflorallove #taylordesigns

My main greenhouse beds are filled with Ranunculus and Anemones, the Ranunculus bed is shown here with plants that are nearly ready to bloom. The plants and seedlings are protected from mice and any other creature that fancies having a feast, with a chicken wire gate that I leave in place during the day. #locallygrownflowers #locallygrown #farmerflorist #gardening #cuttinggarden #cutflowers #shoplocal #ranunculus #surreyflorist

Switching off the Instagram for a little bit. You can find my website link in my bio and reach out via phone or email anytime. I won't be long, but I might miss any DM's in the meantime. Of course I'll reply to any emails and calls as normal. I'm definitely still here, but truthfully I'm feeling a bit defeated (like sooo many) and I want to make sure I spend my time wisely. Its a crazy rollercoaster at the moment, isn't it. I'm so aware that there are people far worst off, and thinking of everyone out there. Look after yourselves mentally and physically. Remember we are all doing a good job, and making the best out of a far from ideal situation. X. #weddingflorist #weddingflowerssurrey #surreyflorist

The intense blue of Muscari is looking great at the moment. I have grown these bulbs in a large pot. Once they stop flowering I will over plant them with Sweet Peas, leaving the bulbs in place to flower again next year. #cutflowers #growyourownflowers #localsales #farmerflorist #warlingham #surreyflorist #grownnotflown

Spring blooms and a story about d a h l i a s :: I have a love/hate relationship with dahlias. I adore their blooms BUT to get those blooms is an awful lot of hard work!! . . . I spent the best part of 7 long hours yesterday unpacking my stored dahlia tubers and cleaning them with a high pressure washer; I then tidied them up and split them. I was very very happy to discover that not one of them had any rot or mouldy stuff growing on them, which was a small bonus! BUT before this I spent two days last October, with the help of two friends lifting said tubers (approx 160 of them) out of clay soil - some of those suckers are big and heavy at the end of the season! The tubers then sit around on the shed floor for about a month trying to dry out so I can bash off some of the soil. In the November cold, I stand in the shed, attempt to bash off as much soil as I can then wrap the tubers in newspaper and pack into cardboard boxes! This takes another two days. Said stored tubers them get carted across the property to a more suitable shed for storing over winter. . . That’s brings me to yesterday’s job. I’m not sure which is worst, lifting them at the end of the season or cleaning them at the start!? Today’s job is taking stock of all the tubers and the splits, deciding what’s making it back into the patch and where’s it’s all going to go. I also have to decide which tubers I want to take cuttings from and those are then potted up and will most likely find a spot in my warm house (greenhouse has no space!) in the hope they’ll burst into life and give me healthy green shoots for cuttings. . . I plant my tubers in May, in long foot deep trenches and then wait for life to emerge from the ground. I won’t bore you any further with details about how the plants are maintained and tended to get those perfect blooms. That’s a story for another day. . . Suffice to say, it’s a labour of love and one I always disregard once those beautiful flowers appear!
