Hello my dear flower loving friends,
Well, what a while it’s been. It has been nearly a whole year since we moved house/garden and three years since I closed my bricks and mortar shop in Ampthill. I will say one one thing, it all felt like yesterday despite many many changes.
Moving house was pretty stressful, they say that don’t they, it’s true, have you ever done it? Anyway, it’s done now. With the new cottage I acquired about a third of an acre in which to grow A Bunch Of Wild. When we first moved in I wasn’t sure how that was going to look exactly, my business or the land, so I sat on it, literally. I spent time pondering what I would like from this change, how I wanted to work and what I wanted to offer. And finally I have realised exactly how I would like A Bunch Of Wild to be.
It has taken a year to see how the sun moves around the garden through the seasons. To plan out where it’s best to put beds and a new greenhouse. I’ve also decorated a little open sided barn where I will be hosting workshops. Yes, workshops are back! I’m hosting one-to-one workshops for florists but also small group floral craft workshops too. And I’ve just started offering my garden gathered bouquets again. These will move through the seasons and in the winter months will be beautiful foliage or dried flowers. I’m also back making my wreaths all year round. I still love sourcing beautiful items for the home so my decorative homewares will also be available from my online shop.
Fresh flowers and wreaths are available for collection from my home in Campton, Bedfordshire.
I’m looking forward to this next chapter and having the space to grow A Bunch Of Wild. Thank you for staying with me whilst I navigated through transitions. And if you are new here, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the flowers.
