The Florist and The Farmer



Miss Pickering and Mr Naylor proudly present

Delphinium Week

For one week only, absolutely all we will be selling are Mr Naylor's Delphiniums.

It is to be a celebration of the very best of English seasonal flowers.

We have thousands of them, packed into every crevice of the shop. It is the most amazing (probably) never before seen sight.

Throughout the week we will be exploring how they are grown, harvested, and what the devil you do with them when you get them home. and also why, 5 minutes after me having taken the first picture Mr Naylor Senior got on his tractor and ploughed them all down.

Come and see for yourself, purchase some, wear the florettes in your hair, or as a buttonhole, use us as a backdrop for your engagement shoot.....

Available in all the colours of the rainbow, well the blue bit of the rainbow.

We are here all week.

I am so looking forward to our lessons on Delphinium. My attempt to grow them years ago here in the Pacific Northwest U.S. was, well let's just say, a failure...maybe I will learn the error of my ways.

I would LOOOOOVE to sleep amoungst them. To be fair, I'd just really like a nap but gee how beautiful!

Sounds amazing, wish I could visit the shop! Does this mean you'll have special bouquets for ordering from the website?
I keep hinting at D but he's really not getting it!

The shop looks amazing - great idea. Never had much luck growing them in our slug ravaged garden.

So glad Mr Naylor [Jnr] didn't let his cynicism get the better of him or your shop may have been devoid of delphiniums and he wouldn't be having such a good time! Will you be helping him with the magazine shoot? He should insist!

A little gasp escaped from my lisps. I wonder if I wasn't a florist if that would happen - lovely!

I reiterate: you are sheer genius!

My name is Becca and I love your twittered urns. Confession. I want some for my non existent garden so I can lie on a hammock and pretend I am Roman.
I also want to lie in the field (pre tractored) and not be at work.
I wish I lived at home so I could pop by and have a sniff.

I suppose a picture of the hound in amongst the floral spectacular is asking too much??
