We grow our flowers with the seasons, so what is in flower and when, is very much dependent on the weather.
Our Summer flowers are generally a mix of perennials, annuals and bulbs.
We have several beds of perennial flowers which we add to each year, by dividing existing plants and sowing more seeds in Autumn. All our annuals are grown from seed, here at Birch Farm, they are sown in peat free compost during March and April. We keep them under cover and carefully prick out and pot them on until they are ready to be planted out after the last frosts, which is usually early to mid May.
Summer bulbs, like Gladiolus and Crocosmia are planted in Spring.
A Manchester mix of sunshine and showers means we should have beds full of flowers by June.
Below is a list of our Summer and Autumn flowers, we grow a variety of species of each genus, from June to October we will have a variety of the following flowers available.
We grow all our flowers on our Manchester flower farm, we grow with the seasons and as nature intended, no peat, no plastic and no pesticides.
All our flowers are full of scent, our style is natural and garden gathered.
