  • A Pesky Pheasant with a Love of Paper Whites!

    This week the office was delighted to see we had a new friend in the Scented Narcissi fields outside the office window- a wonderfully coloured pheasant among all the gloomy weather this week had seen!

    Between taking your orders, and handling your bouquets, we have been trying to snap a picture of our pheasant all week- as you can see he is a very allusive chap!

    It was much to our surprise that one of our farmer's, Mr. Hale, was horrified to hear this bird was in his Scented Narcissi fields, as unbeknownst to us, what it was actually doing was kicking up the carefully planted Scented Narcissi bulbs him and his son, Rob,  had laboured over all Summer!

    This got us thinking- what's the worst pest in your garden? Let us know in your comments below, and we will ask our farmers for any top tips we can pass on to you (with over 130 years of farming behind them, they must know a thing or two!)
