Sunday Telegraph




Our bulbs in jars made it into The Sunday Telegraph.

Quirky goes broadsheet.

Here is the mini how-to that Bunny Guinness mentioned.

You can also do it with lily-of-the-valley plants, or forced tulips, muscari or galanthus. The lab scales and bunsen clamps aren't essential, but oh my if you did happen to have some lying around.......

Somebody is getting a enamel jug filled with viburnum opulus for Valentine's Day.

Somebody else is getting a marriage proposal.

I am getting backache.

This song is cheering us and this year i have put all but one gentleman off buying red roses. We are all about bulbs in jars, and delicate blooms of magnolia and ranunculus.

Cliches are not us.

May you be swept into somebody's arms for a lingering kiss that makes your heart swell, and catches your breath.

Congratulations! I shall be getting none of those for Valentines day, but the hyacinth bulb you inspired me to plant in a jar is looking mighty fine.

What a treat to receive flowers from your shop. I would be a very happy girl (I guess I should stop referring to myself as that at 36) indeed! Lx

Miss Pickering,

You are talented enough that I may start envying you and that is not pleasant.

Congratulations on the telegraph!

You have inspired me to grow things. You have also inspired me to love my pups always.
