In a cutting flower garden
Regular readers of this blog will know that I have a small bedin my garden that I have as a cutting patch. Sometime last year I came aware of the Blackshed Cutting Garden and started following them on Facebook. They are now in their 3rd year of operation and are based in Sherborne in Dorset.
This week we had a meeting in Sherborne and before returning home we decided to go and visit them and buy some flowers.
We were surprised by the scale and beauty of it all, apologies to you that these images are taken with my mobile phone and don't show the flowers in their full glory, but I'm sure you will appreciate the beauty and wonder of it despite this! The scale and number of flowers was just stunning!
Having looked around the gardens we then went around them with Paul and choose which flowers
we would like in our bunch. It was a very unusual but lovely way to buy some flowers and it was good to buy local flowers with no air miles and no plastic.I was also surprised to see that many flowers were being dried too as I thought dried flowers had gone out of fashion!
I even managed to persuade my husband on the way home that it would be a fantastic idea to give up one of his vegetable beds outside our bedroom window and convert it into another cutting patch, Nevertheless I will still have to find other reasons to visit Black Shed Flowers and Sherborne more frequently!
