Spring begins at Bramble Cottage

March and April are always busy at Bramble Flowers. The garden is beginning to come alive with new growth and flowers start to appear…

…blossom on shrubs, hellebores, narcissi and tulips really get going during these months

Bouquets begin to go out at the end of March, lovely fresh spring flowers and beautifully scented with narcissi Winston Churchill and hyacinths

At the beginning of April Bramble Flowers provided flowers for a very special event at Sussex Barn at Burnham Market, ‘Looks, Books and the real Downton Abbey’ with talks by historian Rosemary Hill and Lady Carnarvon. The flowers had to have a ‘Downton’ feel and were seasonal as would have been used on the estate. The table centres were glass with wire support for the flowers so no floral foam was used in the displays.

The colour scheme was predominantly white against the greenery with hellebores to contrast, perfect for double scented narcissi, anemones and viburnum. The urns and vase (arranged by Jemma Buck of jbuckflowers) were filled with white and pink flowering currant, blackthorn blossom and hellebores…

I was really pleased (and relieved) to see how well the flowers looked in situ. White and green seems to be a popular theme for weddings at the moment. These Buckets of Blooms were for an April wedding, the greenish-white tulips (Evita and Mount Tacoma) are particularly nice

Towards the end of April and now into May the ranunculus really begin to bloom and look lovely in spring bouquets
