#grownnotflown Seasonal Arrangements from The Great British Florist - 24th June 2019

By Rob Gale Yesterday

All our fresh flower arrangements are over on our sister site The Great British Florist

Our cutting patch supplies many of our blooms here on the farm and we use a network of other British flower farmers which deliver direct into our farm floristry. We design and put together each individual posy from the mix of seasonal scented flowers which are then despatched via courier on a next day delivery service. We despatch Monday – Thursday so deliveries are between Tuesday and Friday to ensure your flowers are always fresh.

If we need to supplement our flower supplies we only use stems that are sourced in near Europe so that none of our flowers are flown in from overseas. We promise that this arrangement will contain as many British Flowers and/or Foliage as possible, often 100%. You will always have our British Grown Stem Count to rely on which is marked on each delivery note and when it’s possible to send 100% UK grown flowers you have our commitment that we will do just that.

Colours and designs will vary according to the season and what’s available at the time you order. What is guaranteed is that no two posies are ever the same and that all our posies are delightful.

Below we've got a preview of what we've been sending this past week (from 17th June) as an example - remember these arrangements will always vary on what's best in our floristry on the day!

Hand-Tied Seasonal Garden Posy £35 + £5.95 DELIVERY

Using your Worm Compost: as a Compost

By Rob Gale 3 days ago

The compost is very rich in nutrients and organic matter and can be used as an excellent medium to grow plants in. It is rich in soluble plant foods and its fine crumbly texture will greatly improve soil structure. It is not necessary to sterilise the compost before using it in the garden, its bacterial content comprises beneficial species which will not harm your plants. It can be used in all the situations where compost is normally used, for example when planting seeds or shrubs; or as a top dressing for fast growing plants.

Worm Compost is an ideal base for mixing fine composts. The mix of products in your own compost ‘recipe’ is, up to you, but the following proportions will give good results:

- For potting:

25% Organic Compost, 25% Coir,

25% Perlite, 25% Sand

- For seeds:

25% Organic Compost, 25% Perlite, 50% Coir (Ground Bark or Coco Peat are suitable alternatives to standard Moss Peat.)

If you haven't given it a go, why not consider starting Worm Composting in one of our new Urbalive Worm Composters? https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/wormeries.html

Lawns and Meadows – Save Mowing… and Wildlife

Most of us really do need a lawn, whether it’s to beat the kids at football (!) or to sit and relax. But lawns can be very high maintenance, especially if you’re aiming for a weed and moss free sward. You’ll likely spend a whole lot of time, use a huge amount of chemicals and waste plenty of water and mower petrol to get close to that ideal stripy paradise… Is the result really worth it?

Here’s a step by step guide to making your lawn truly green…

Wormery Help: Could my Worms Die?

By Rob Gale 10 days ago

Yes: Occasionally this can happen. It may be because of excess moisture in the wormery. Excess moisture by itself shouldn’t hurt earth worms, but the problem may be lack of oxygen related to high moisture levels. It may be because of decaying food. Mouldy bio-waste in itself also shouldn’t kill earthworms. But should you find mouldy food leftovers in the wormery, remove them. It may possibly be that the worms are starving. Earthworms may starve and die after only several weeks without a food supply. If you managed to compost your worms, don’t panic. Try again with a new hatch of earthworms!

Alternatively if you feel the need to start again, our Wormery Rescue kit has everything you'll need to give it another go. https://www.wigglywigglers.co.uk/wormery-rescue-kit.html
