Scented Narcissi

  • Island Flowers

    We might not have Scented Narcissi growing at the moment, but we do have some fabulous flowers blooming across the islands, in hedgerows, coastal paths, and gardens. Here are some of our favourite:

  • Life on the Farm July 2014

    Our farmers are as busy as ever preparing the fields for next Season's crop, which should be ready around the end of September.

    Mike Brown from Sunnyside Farm has been using the machine below, a "Bulb Hoover", in the last few days on his farm.

    The Bulb Hoover has belts that scoop the bulbs up & into the wooden box on the back.

    The next step is to bring them back to the shed for cleaning & grading.

    Before machines like this were invented, the bulbs used to be ploughed up,  left to dry on the ground, then picked up by hand into baskets.

    (Some of our florists are taking part in the celebrations too- this one is by Jessie from The Poundbury Florist in Dorchester)

    As you all know, our flowers don't start growing until mid-September, but we won't let that stop us from joining in with the fun!

    We might not be able to offer a bouquet, but hold on to the voucher you find, and you can redeem it this Autumn- we promise the first Scented Narcissi of the Season from our farmers will be worth the wait!
