If I’m honest, up to now I’ve been a bit of a Flower Nazi, much to Emma’s annoyance.
In my defence, being an urban container grower with a flat’s six foot balcony, or a terrace’s five foot square concrete backyard, doesn’t leave much room for flowers taking up valuable growing space.
But moving to The Secret Acre with its er…. acre, means even I have to admit there is space for a few unnecessary flowers, in moderation of course.
And when Emma’s Buttercup Ranunculus flowered this spring I even have to admit they looked quite impressive, even if you can’t eat them!
