Our Lady's tears

Tucked in the posies is a couple of stems of homegrown 'our Lady's tears' (aka lily of the valley). This fleeting woodland favourite has the most beautiful dainty cup-shaped flowers and scent. We’re also snipping a few things out of the cutting garden now, such as tufty sweet william buds and apple mint. We are hoping the mint is hardy enough to use this week and that it arrives in good condition. The stems can sometimes sulk and may need a recut and a good drink.

I’m calling on some extra help at the moment and making some changes to the deliveries as I’ve managed to tear a ligament in my thumb which is making things a bit of a challenge but perhaps it’s an opportunity to ensure things can still get on without me acting as a bottleneck!
