Cut Summer Flowers

The revival of English cut flowers comes at a time when farm shops and farmer's markets are increasing in popularity, part of a movement to promote British, local and home-grown produce. As part of this drive, Jo Wright launched Organic Blooms during 2006, starting modestly with a few beds of flowers before moving to a larger site in where the first of three polytunnels was installed. Today, the nursery grows herbs and cut flower crops largely from seed, focusing on both traditional and native species. Flowers range from anemones, cosmos and ranunculus to zinnias, dahlias, achilleas, marigolds and sweet peas. These flowers lend themselves to natural-looking flower arrangements. Everything is grown sustainably and without the use of artificial chemicals.
