In the hamlet of Cherry Tree, on the edge of Ainsworth village, I use organic principles to grow willow and beautiful, fragrant country garden style cut flowers. Working as sustainably as possible, the flowers and soil are nourished without chemicals (the hens make their contributions] to maximise the benefits for the bees and other insects. The flowers are available throughout summer and autumn for locally delivered bouquets, weddings, events and funerals. Every flower I sell grows here on the smallholding. Christmas sees wreaths, garlands and table decorations available with festive sessions for you to create your own too. The winter months have willow as their focus with harvesting, planting and worshops making use of both dried and living willow varieties. As a qualified teacher with over 25 years’ experience, I also host seasonal workshops here, using the flowers, foliage, and willow that I grow, to offer a variety of sustainable craft experiences. Hand made British willow products are available on a wholesale basis to independent UK businesses.
