    Heartily agree with all this perennial love! Only problem I have is space. The flowers I grow and sell are squeeeeezed into my garden borders, and the perennials are closing in on the space I have for annuals. Just need a field I guess. Until that day, my business will be fun but tiny.

    As for the painted Tesco roses in previous post, well YUK and up the revolution! (Unless the whole post was a joke?? Can hardly believe it was true!)

      Ha! No hand on heart the painted roses are really in Tesco…go and have a look. I was a little worried about writing about it, in case I was the only one who didn’t know this was a common practice!!!
      As for a field…amazingly Higgledy has just been offered one close by, from a lovely local family who need it looking after for a while.
      I have had trouble posting on your excellent blog ‘wild acre’. I get the same problem with a few blogspot blogs…it must be the way my machine is set up because it’s fine on other machines….I will sort this out.
      Many Thanks for your interest….stay with us! x

      PS If you are ever looking for a guest blogger or would yourself like to guest blog on Higgledy about either your flowers or other ‘pies’ then please be in touch. :)

        Sorry you had trouble commenting at my gaff, the powers of the blogworld need to get tweaking their htmls or whatever slightly dodgy-sounding activity is required to dovetail the various blog providers/systems.

        Well, I would be honoured to guest post at some point – thankyou, never been asked before, blush. Something along the lines of my “Love your kitchen table” post might work? But encouraging people to buy local flowers in November might be wasted breath – perhaps in the Spring? Or, I am a mighty fan of alliums so could post about them? Your call, obviously! Belinda

          Hey Belinda…why not think about a post regarding what you do in the winter when NOT growing flowers…do a piece about your jewelry perhaps??? I’m sure you can weave a flower link in somehow. Congrats on finishing your first season growing…brilliant work.
          My blogsphere friend Jan has just done a post….so how about one in about a week??? But of course I’ll work around you…basically whatever you want to writ about whenever you want to write it! …and a couple of pics would be great…

            Hi Ben, that would all be fine, but for next week rather than this one coming if that’s ok, I am trying to sort out a webpage this week (help!) and the first of my four kids has just gone down with a vile sick bug so I think my hands will be full (hopefully not literally!!). belinda
