Rain Makes The Flowers Grow

You need rain to make the flowers grow, so the saying goes. Which is true, but before those flowers are even flowers, you also need it to stop flipping raining so you can plant the seedlings. What a soggy winter it’s been. When we’re not in season and harvesting flowers,...

B Corp

We are a flower business that tries to do good in an industry where there is plenty of bad. But we would say that, wouldn’t we? Like other businesses in our situation we are susceptible to accusations of green-washing, white-washing and other unenviable types of washing. When you take a...

The Cusp of Spring

It’s still pretty chilly in Cornwall as we write this but there have definitely been glimpses of our old friend spring on her way. March is when our season starts, in the sense that the odd bloom here and there gives way to a flurry of colour and as such,...
