Alongside the established shrubs and borders of the farmhouse our native hedgerow was planted with cutting in mind, with guelder rose, holly, rowan and spindle, honeysuckle and wild roses among the hawthorn, elder, and crab apple sheltering us from south westerly breezes. Nestled here are our fledgling roses, larkspur, cornflower, poppies, sweet peas, fragrant herbs and unusual sunflowers to name but a few. Growing organically supports wildlife and actively increases the numbers and variety of flora and fauna in our countryside. We believe traditional gardening methods and the varieties of flowers we grow are part of Cornwall’s heritage.

Our organic and seasonally sensitive growing methods not only minimise the impact of cultivating flowers on the environment and health but produce flowers which are positively beautiful and interesting. These reflect the specific character and changing nature of Cornwall’s landscapes, and its enduring appeal. We do not use chemicals or artificial heat we develop a working relationship with our natural environment.
*During winter months a small selection of our flowers and foliage found in your bouquet may not yet be organically certified but rest assured they are treated with the organic love and care they deserve! As a new business, at certain times, we have to buy in flowers to supplement our own. We always source these locally, so they are always Cornish and seasonal.
