Drying Nigella pomanders and poppies at Crockbarton
This weekend we went to the country and took some of the poppies and nigella that have been picked recently. Our fireplaces are now full so thought I would dry some at Catherine's - She lives in a 16th Century weavers cottage in Timsbury with huge inglenook fireplaces. I have dried flowers everywhere and am busy wondering where I am going to put all the hydrangeas when we start cutting them shortly..
Wendy Paul of Organic Blooms
Organic Blooms have now cut all the nigella they have been growing for us and have it hanging from the rafters of their flower shed ready for collection. They have an open day on the 4th September so if you want to see Wendy Paul, their florist, with hundreds of nigella seeds in her hair go and check them out. Its the most amazing place.
