This week is British Flowers Week and with our cutting garden in full swing we’re celebrating the joys of using British blooms. Last year we had a fantastic crop of dahlias, cosmos, astrantia, roses and sweet peas. This year we have doubled our crop and added some gorgeous new varieties.

I wanted to share my experiences of this year’s cutting garden and to sing the praises of one particular flower that we grew, the beautiful Dahlia ‘Cafe au Lait’. We planted a large batch of bulbs in late May, the first flowers bloomed in July and they are still coming in late October, it has been a joy to grow this majestic flower and so rewarding to start growing our own.
