Flower Focus : Ranunculus

The ranunculus originates from central Asia and was given its rather strange name after arriving in Europe during the 16th century. The unusual name is derived from Latin, meaning “little frog” which is fairly fitting because in the wild, ranunculus grow in swampy, marshy areas – maybe that’s why it ...

What’s Going On On The Farm? Part 6

You may remember from our last update that we had some very early, slightly imperfect anemones just starting to bloom. Well they’ve really gone for it since then and they are truly beautiful.

What’s Going On On The Farm? Part 5

This year started with some hard frosts. We’ve been told there were no hard frosts in Cornwall last year but we’ve had 3 already this winter. New year’s day was a very sorry sight in the polytunnels and we had some very sad snapdragons, which caused a bit of ...

What’s Going On On The Farm? Part 4

And just like that, December is upon us. We’ve been super busy since our last update and we now have one completely full polytunnel!

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

When talking about feedback, we all know which is the best type to receive, but when discussing the feedback we’re most likely to give, does ‘good’ still take first place?

They say if you’ve had a great experience with a brand, you’ll tell two people, versus the five people ...
