Ruth Gwynn - Meadow Cut Flowers - The Cut Flower Shed
Garden Name: Meadow Cut Flowers - The Cut Flower Shed
The garden at the front of this farm-shop The Cut Flower Shed gives customers a tantalising taste of the produce grown by this artisan producer of British cut flowers based in Worcestershire. Two large raised borders within this vintage inspired cutting garden are made from recycled timber and contain a riot of colourful flowers and foliage used for flower arranging. Climbing plants are grown up rustic obelisks and a windbreak made from re-purposing metal gardening and agricultural tools. The look and feel of the garden is relaxed and informal, which follows through to the paving and shop/ garden furniture.
