In a similar fashion to the fruit and vegetables that were grown for the Estate back in its prime, the gardeners would have cultivated a range of flowers to be cut for the House. Roll on to the 2020’s and a revived interest in British flower farming has created a new demand for locally grown cut flowers.
We’re propagating and growing a range of seasonal cut flowers here at Water Lane. Again following an organic approach and growing in no-dig beds the flowers produced are available to buy in the spring, summer and autumn months, by both visitors and local florists.
Over the course of a year you’ll find a wide range of varieties and colours from which to choose from, including, narcissi, tulips, anemone, ranunculus, wallflowers, ammi, foxgloves, calendula, gypsophila, nigella, sweet peas, larkspur, roses, dahlia, malope, cosmos, sunflowers. chrysanthemum and many more too.
