It’s the height of summer now and my allotment is in full bloom. Several years ago I decided to dedicate a patch of ground to growing my own cut flowers. I was bored with the choice of flowers on offer at the supermarket and florists, I was no longer happy about buying imported blooms and the environmental impact of growing and transporting them, and I thought it would be fun to give growing my own a try.
Despite investing in the biggest greenhouse I could afford when I bought mine some 25 years ago I fill it to the brim every year. At 12ft by 8ft I thought its generous size would be more than adequate for my growing plans, but if I had more space I'd fill it!
