Meadow Farm Flowers


I moved into Spaldington outside of Howden in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the Spring four year’s ago and brought with me tulips and alliums in large tubs and sweet peas and dahlias. The polytunnel soon went up and later in the year we dug a couple of very large beds for outside cut flower production! The soil here is extremely heavy clay, but full of goodness. I create my own compost from fallen leaves, grass cuttings, garden cuttings and vegetable garden waste – also lots of coffee grounds!

Ammi ‘Green Mist’, Sweet peas ‘Princess Elizabeth’, mallow, lupin and roses ‘Olivia Rose’. – June..

Winter is here now, quite a bit of rain and chilly too…Seed planting starts in March and will continue throughout much of the upcoming season. Tulips were planted in the poly tunnel during last November and a new leaky pipe irrigation system has been installed to help keep the soil moist as the seasons progress. Roll on Spring….Lizanne x.

First of my sweet peas – the beginning of the summer.
