ABOUT MY BUSINESS
I moved into Spaldington outside of Howden in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the Spring two 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!
Now we are into winter and the weather has become much colder and windier, my flower selling has now ceased. But my planning for next year is going full steam ahead! The polytunnel is being cleared of summer and autumn planting and spring perennials, bulbs and dahlias are now getting ready for the chill of the winter. Cut flowers and ornamental grass seeds are being bought for planting in the New Year – ready for sowing. Lizanne.
