I made some posies yesterday for the Garden Museum's Mother's Day treat - a personal Q&A with Matthew Biggs (of Gardener's Question Time), cream tea in the lovely cafe, and a bunch of flowers and a planted gift to take home.
The beautiful cutting garden is choc-a-block with different narcissi, hellebores, and the promise of tulips.
I filled buckets full of spring flowers, mixing tulips. and sweet-smelling hyacinths and genista (broom) with the daffodils.
Once I'd finished making the bunches, I went to see Liz, one of the museum's talented and dedicated gardeners.
She had finished planting up gifts for mothers/children to take - florists' favourite Narcissus 'Erlicheer' along with violets and something else...ivy, maybe?
She was writing labels for the gifts when I came over. I admired her shiny new hand trowel!
I took some pictures of the knot garden and the spring bulbs that have flowered or are on their way.
