No need to buy imported shop flowers when at this time of the year you can make your own floral arrangements from the spoils of your cut flower garden. Not only saving you a few euros it also saves on the air miles.

This is an arrangement that Sarah made using Dahlia, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Verbena Bonariensis, Buddleja and Cup and Saucer Vine (Cobaea scandens) all from our own garden.

Making a floral arrangement also brings scent and visual pleasure indoors, especially as today has also been torrential Thursday. And even better you can fill your house with vases of cut flowers for most of the year with seeds, such as Moluccella laevis (Bells of Ireland), Cosmos ‘Purity’, Nigella damascena ‘Persian Jewels’and Calendula ‘Citrus Cocktail’.

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.
