Flower Farming for beginners

Flower Farming For Beginners.
The UK is a tiny island packed with people, hardly anyone has a piece of land let alone a farm, yet we all dream of farming flowers one day…

Well that day is today!

The good news is you need a lot less space that you might think to grow cut flowers and  produce bucket loads of gorgeous blooms!

Dahlias…to lift…or…not to lift?

At the end of the season what do we do with our Dahlias…….The best defense is excellent drainage…, here at Swan Cottage Flowers, we garden on Buckinghamshire light sandy loam, which proves a challenge keeping everything fed and watered during the growing season…but is excellent for overwintering Dahlias.
