It has been a fortnight of running from pillar to post but all is well in the green pastures of the Higgledy Kingdom. Higgledy citizens go about their Higgledy business and all is well.
Despite still struggling with production after our fight with the drought, we are producing damm fine bunches of flowers…even if I say so myself….which I do….quite a lot…I’ll probably say it again in a minute.
The flowers are selling like the proverbial Hot Cakes, with two out of my three retailers selling out of them. I can barely keep up. Happily the Cambridge punters seem delighted with the most simple blooms. Cornflowers and Calendula just fly off the shelf.
I can’t tell you how happy this makes me after the tricky start to the season that we had.
We won’t recover from the effects of the drought this year but next year we will be prepared.
Calendula isn’t very popular with cut flower growers so it seems…some say they don’t like the way it smells. I love it…really really love it. The deep honey orange of Indian Prince is a winner…it just melts in the eye.
Cosmos still to come and some Mexican Sunflowers….oh yes my friends…it’s all happening down here at the Higgledy Garden….you should pop down for a Sherry.
