The Nosey Posy - 21


That stinks!

As well as stinky being one of my daughter's favourite words, it's also used to describe the green hellebores featured in this week's posy. But do not fear, they're only somewhat pungent if the leaves are crunched up. I also just discovered that hellebores belong to the buttercup family, as does the white ranunculus also in the posy.

Direct from the grower

This week all but the ranunculus is British - not bad for January and this lousy weather! The alstromeria has come direct from Ben the grower in West Sussex, who's family business has been growing altros for 70 years.

What's British this week?

Alstromeria, Narcissi, Tulips, Birch, Tree Heather, Hazel catkins.
