Meadow Farm Flowers


I moved into Spaldington outside of Howden in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the Spring three 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!

Soft colours from an August 2021 bouquet.
Ammi ‘Green Mist’, Sweet peas ‘Princess Elizabeth’, mallow, lupin and roses ‘Olivia Rose’. – June 2021.

July is here and so is summer with quite a bit of rain…Flowers are appearing later than last year. Seed planting started in March and will continue throughout much of the upcoming season. Foxgloves, Honesty and Sweet Williams were planted today. As I look around the garden I see colour all around, pinks, peach, white and pops of yellow! Lizanne.

First of my sweet peas – the beginning of July 2021.
Late tulips and early roses combined with cow parsley – May 2021.

I am part of Flowers from the Farm a national group of flower growers. If you would like a bunch of locally grown British Flowers delivered, take a look! I deliver free within a 10 mile radius of Howden.
