THE CUTTING GARDEN
At Fernwood Flowers, we grow many of our own flowers here in on our small flower farm. A few years ago I became aware of the slow flower movement in the US and the UK- essentially sustainably grown flowers or the field- to vase phenomenon. I decided to try growing some flowers myself. In particular I was drawn to the imperfection of flowers from the garden, the curved stems and the wildness that they can add to an arrangement. The fact that these flowers had a very small carbon footprint and could be grown without the use of heavy chemicals also appealled. It turned out our customers love the addition of the garden flowers and for this year's season we will be growing more than 40 varieties of flowers here in our flower farm in North County Meath. Stay tuned for updated photos throughout the year.
