A day out to Sarah Ravens Perch Hill ..

So this week The Potting Sheds embarked on our first outing to Perch Hill in Sussex, the home of the very lovely Sarah Raven. After hearing and reading so much about it for so long, we were intrigued to see what it would be like in real life !!


We were enrolled on Sarah's 'cut flower and creating a cutting garden' course , we were not disappointed!!!!

After the most delicious cakes, we headed into the classroom (stunning), for an amazing morning, full of information on which flowers to grow to give you maximum productivity for the majority of the year and loads of useful tips on cutting gardens. We headed for lunch, giddy with inspiration.


We were then invited to wander around the stunning gardens, bucket and snips in hand, to gather our own flowers to create, with Sarah's amazing guidance, our own hand tied bunches. 


After so much fun and giggling we managed to squeeze our (oversized!) creations into the car, and left Perch Hill utterly inspired to create our own, albeit small, cutting garden, were we can snip beautiful blooms to use in our own shop bunches. 


Our little shop is always filled with bunches of flowers and posies, plants and vases and we would be delighted to discuss any of your flowery needs. Have a lovely weekend  xx
