To All the Mums

Mother's Day is always rather
frustrating, especially when it comes early and the flowers are late.
A missed opportunity for British flower growers I think. If only we
could change it to a Sunday in June. 

Anyway, I decided to rise to the
challenge and create a bouquet with only what is flowering in our
cutting gardens, bearing in mind that I am lucky to have an unheated
polytunnel for some of our spring bulbs.

The bouquet contains a beautiful
selection of hellebores with rich, intense colours (specially bred by
Hugh Nunn of Harvington Hellebores) these match up well to the jewel-like
anemones. For foliage, I had rosemary, arum leaf and pussy willow.

    I totally agree, it is a tad early for our British Flowers to really rise to the floral challenge that is Mothering Sunday – we should swap with Fathers Day which is in June!I absolutely love hellebores and anemones so this would’ve been my perfect spring Mothering Sunday bouquet! X
