It’s been two years since I decided to stop buying cut flowers for the cottage. I love flowers so the first year was difficult. It seemed as if there were flowers for sale everywhere. I was tempted at every turn.
This year the challenge has reaped dividends. I’ve overhauled the herbaceous borders over the past two years and now grow far more flowers than I used to. I treasure these flowers, whether they are growing in situ or picked to take indoors.
Searching for flowers, especially during the winter months, means examining the garden with a fine-tooth comb. I discovered this morning that primroses are already flowering in the frosty soil. These have happily self seeded all over the garden and will bloom on and off until Easter.
