Flowers have taken over our lives. We grow lots of wonderful garden and wild flowers, unusual & common, old fashioned and modern – the important thing is that they are all very beautiful, lots are scented, many are fragile and fleeting, some are dainty, some are decadent and showy, some are just outrageous. We love them all. We combine them with gentle foliage, scented herbs, wafty grasses and twiddly twigs, berries, hips, and seedheads to make lively and intricate bouquets.
We work with what is seasonal, try not to buy in at all (if we do, they will be British)and relish the variety this brings – no peonies at Christmas here, I’m afraid.
Where can you buy them?
We sell mixed bunches of flowers at local markets. The list changes, but we are reliably at Nantwich Farmers Market on last Saturday of the month, 9-2. We may do some more markets in East Cheshire, we will keep you updated in the newsletter, and on twitter/facebook
We will make up gift bouquets to order for collection from Harthill, or for local delivery (up to 10 miles). At the moment you will need to phone or email orders, and pay on delivery or collection. Bouquet sizes are £25, £35, £45 Webshop will be next thing…
We are building up the quantities we grow so we can now supply florists and floral designers with locally grown flowers and foliage. Our flowers are most suitable for wedding and event work rather than retail florists, especially as many are fragile and some will not have the same vase life as traditional flowers. If you would like to be included on our availability mailings, please contact us by email or phone and we will send you a brochure and add you onto circulation list. This is a new direction for 2016 and availability & delivery options will develop as the year progresses! Follow Instagram account ‘carolsiddorn‘ to see regular photos of what’s new on site.
