Signs of spring!

This week we have a touch of blue from the baby muscari bulbs (grape hyacinth) tucked into the posies. These are a new trial from one of our Lincolnshire growers and have been grown hydroponically on spiked trays with water. We haven't used muscari this way before. They will keep growing whilst in the arrangement and can be cared for by spraying the bulb with water from time to time, if you get the chance. After enjoying them indoors, you could also plant the bulb out in the garden and it should come up again next year and start to form a clump. I think the yellow varigated euonymus and touch of mimosa is a nice contrast to the blue and and these uplifting colours make me feel spring is round the corner.

Mothering Sunday is a time to reflect and give thanks for the wonderful past and present mothers in our families. If you have someone special you would like to treat, why not start a MeadowSweet British flower subscription for them this Mother's Day, with the first delivery arriving on Friday 8th March, which also happens to be World Women's Day - win, win!
