April: An Ode to Tulips

April has been a busy month on the flower farm, lots of sowing, planting, harvesting and designing bouquets alongside troubleshooting setbacks caused by pests and fitting a water supply. Not to mention the dry spring making it hard to keep transplanted seedlings happy...

So, instead of focusing on all that, I thought I would share a few of my favourite tulip images from this season. More updates from the cutting garden will come in the May post!

First off, I visited Sissinghurst Gardens in Kent earlier in the month and wow was it magical. So many inspiring planting schemes in lovely pots and whimsical borders.

Later that same day (what a dreamy day out it was!) I popped over to Perch Hill, Sarah Raven's Private garden. A few days a year she opens to the public to share her beautiful garden and cut flower variety trials. I attended her Tulip day, and was blown away by the flowers.

I booked onto one of her dahlia open days in September immediately after I got home, Perch Hill truly is an impressive garden.

Lastly before I leave you, I wanted to share some tulips from my own cutting garden. All have been sold and enjoyed now, but for weeks and weeks in April they brought myself and many of you lots of Joy.
