so it's been in the diary for a while but as I developed a cold from hell, which on chatting to many of our grower friends is the joy of the end of season, my illness then advanced into lose of voice....(my kids, husband and Maz were I'm sure loving this moment!!!)...the looming radio interview seemed suddenly upon us. Fear not its true that an evening out on the mulled wine (thank you to our neighbours) does in fact cure a horsed throat!
So Sunday saw us demonstrating how we make our Christmas wreaths at The Duchy of Cornwall Nursery. The festivities included carol singing, mulled apple juice (another great option for sore throats!) and cookery demonstrations. It was lovely to be part of this experience and I have to say I'm finally getting into the festive vibe.
So the radio bit.... Well Radio Cornwall broadcast their garden programme from the Duchy and whilst making a wreath we were interviewed about the process....no pressure.
the voice held up well and actually I'm kinda getting used to the husky tone - it feels right for radio!!!
if you want to listen to our interview this is the link: Duncan Warren BBC Radio Cornwall.
The wreath we created was packed with a variety of foliage, viburnum, larch and drying ammi heads. All finished with a high quality ribbon.
if you would like to order a wreath we deliver by courier around the UK. Our two delivery dates are Thursday 4 December and Thursday 18 December. They cost £56 inc of delivery.
Alternatively if you are local we will be selling our wreaths on Dickensian Night on Thursday 11 December in Lostwithiel. We will have lots of different sizes and each will be unique. Oh and new for this Christmas are our festive decorations. Each one individual and can be refilled with sweets or a candle - you can purchase these on Dickensian Night!
so I hope that's got you all in the festive mood...only 24days to go!
