Beautiful Holker-grown blooms on sale in new pop-up flower hut
BEAUTIFUL blooms grown in the private gardens of Holker Hall are now on sale to the public.
The talented garden team at the stately home work all year round to grow cut flowers for breathtaking displays in the 400-year-old hall as well as its Courtyard Café and Ilex Brasserie.
But a range of freshly picked posies and bouquets made up of seasonal stems are now for sale from the pop-up Holker flower hut in The Courtyard between Thursday and Sunday every week.
Glyn Sherratt, Holker Hall head gardener, said blooms are collected in the kitchen garden by flower grower Amy early in the morning before being arranged for sale to the public just hours later.
“There really is something special about British grown flowers produced right here at Holker,” he added.
“They are grown from seed just a wheelbarrow ride away in the kitchen garden so they are as sustainable as can be.”
Holker’s cut flower venture has now been featured in the July edition of Lancashire Life magazine.
It includes expert tips for those keen to know how to create striking arrangements from flowers and greenery found in UK gardens.
Glyn added: “The colours are spectacular and they are also grown to organic principles. We hope visitors buy a bunch and enjoy them in all their glory at home.”
