  • Carreg Dhu: The Garden of St. Mary's

    We recently took a stroll through the wonderful Carreg Dhu gardens, based on St. Mary's.

    These beautiful gardens, pronounced locally as "Crake Dew", are a community garden near Longstone Terrace

    This means that you can go along and help maintain the garden, or simply relax and enjoy the beauty of it.

    They even have a whole section dedicated to the history of the Narcissi industry.

    Have you ever been?

  • Farm Life

    You might be wondering what all of our farmers do when we aren't sending out flowers. We've had suggestions that they are taking long holidays in foreign places, or relaxing on the islands- but unfortunately for them, that is far from the truth!

    At this stage in the Season, the farmers have to dig up all the acres of fields so they can treat and sterilise the Narcissi bulbs ready to be replanted.

    The fields are prepared ready for next season too!

    There is a long process before the bulbs are ready for replanting as they are above, so check back on our blog in a few weeks and we will explain the next stage to you!

  • *NEW* Victoria Heaney Collection

    We were really sad to see the last of our flowers go, so were delighted when our resident artist Victoria Heaney offered us some more of her fabulous prints to sell on our website.
