The sun is shining down on our flower garden in Devon, it’s SPRING! And we haven’t been blown away yet (although a few panes on the greenhouse have). Our first batch of flowers are just about ready to be picked- anemones, whoopee!
I’ve been wanting to grow anemones for a while now, they flower incredibly early, come in a beautiful array of colours, and they’re one of my favourite flowers. I had a rather disastrous experience growing them last year, with measly short, weak flowers, and plenty of rotted corms to boot. But this year… this year I think I’ve cracked it!
I managed to source some corms of Galilee Pastel anemones (on my list for a while: it’s a long list…) They are just starting to properly flower, and they are incredible! Long, strong stems, and the colours are just spot on; lots of faded pastel and dusky colours. Perfect for spring weddings, and stunning bouquets! I’ll be using them in some floristry this weekend- pics to follow soon.
So yes, exciting times at Holly-Bee; hurrah for spring!
