When the bride asks for lots of colour 💖 Congratulations @almathrows & Anton we hope you’re having the best day 🥂 WLFC is #ooo for a few days squeezing in some last min R&R before the bulb planting mayhem in October 🍂 so happy weekend all 🚗 🚂 ✈️
Brian being a total diva and refusing to pose with the asters 🌸 2nd pic shows their #truecolours 🙏🏻 for the 📷@wolveslane_n22
And all of a sudden Autumn is definitely here 🍂 That said our cutting garden is full of these beauts at the moment and will keep flowering until the first frost ❄️ So snap them up while you can! We’ve probably got another month until we’ve got to pull all the dahlias out and keep them warm over the winter until we can plant them out again next spring 🌱
A bunch of dahlias to brighten up the @wolveslane_n22 stall tomorrow for the Volunteers Fair at Ally Pally 11.00-13.00. Our friends and colleagues will be talking about the opportunities to come and volunteer on our amazing site. DM us if you'd be interested in hearing more but can't make it!
Sunday rest! This was Friday - detailed & focussed wedding prepping at WLFC with the honesty that we sowed last summer and planted in the autumn 🍂 Marianne really has the knack for fiddly work with fishing wire (lucky one of us does!) and made these hanging ribbons with fennel and straw flower for a foliage hanging installation that we created for lovely couple Alex and Dave for their wedding celebrations @stourspace yesterday 🥂👰🏻 💃🏻 ps - thanks to wonderful @folkloreflowers_ for the straw flowers!
We were excited to be asked by @_sebastianconrad to chat to him about our floral journey so far and are plans for what comes next. From the middle of September the two of us - Camila and Marianne - will finally be back working at Wolves Lane together after mat leave and the world of fashion producing (and a couple of holidays 😁) have meant we've only snatched a handful of days together since 2018 began. It was great to take a moment to take stock and zoom out before we move forward, so thank you for the opportunity Sebastian! Link to the interview in our biog 👆
Back on the plot doing one of our favourite things - cutting stems for florist friends as committed to working with #britishflowers as we are ✂️ Making our flowers available to other businesses is a no brainer and is something that we’d like to expand on next season for more #localblooms with a smaller carbon footprint 💛🌍
Fennel as foliage - luckily it’s a total thug in the garden so we’ll always have more than enough 💛 Happy Saturday
This pair of posers out for delivery today - both going to homes 5 minutes from our site - doesn’t get more local than that 💥
There’s so much that we wouldn’t be able to do on our site without the help of volunteers, friends, family, Jem, Brian & new friends @edible_londonuk - they bossed the #nodig approach on this plot today that had been overtaken with bindweed and horsetail - Thanks guys! 🙏🏻 We’ll be planting out in the autumn for lots of summer flowers 🌸
A new dahlia variety we grew this year- jury’s still out on this one, we weren’t expecting it to well....so pink 🤷♀️ We are loving Marianne’s old garden shed door though as a new backdrop #wastenotwantnot
Just Joey & other peachy friends arranged for a couple celebrating 38 years of marriage today💥🌈💫🥂All grown by WLFC
No arranging necessary 😍 with this scorcher of a summer this plumbago in Marianne's parents' garden is delighted with itself. Any growers out there any idea whether it holds up from cutting? The colours are so dreamy!
Dahlias, zinnias, astrantia, scabious, fennel and other locally grown beauties off to a Wood Green home today 🐞
Birthday brights from the weekend 🎈Warm colours for an even warmer day 🌡 we got asked for clashing colours and nothing too bridal- all grown by us on our plot in north London ☀️
Whites and greens for today's beautiful bride Tania, all from our cutting garden in Wood Green
Ammi Visnaga after the 🌧 thank you weather gods for answering our prayers 💫
This year's seasons have tested our enthusiasm and upper body strength in carrying countless watering cans back and forth. Another week with a forecast of no rain is tough on the morale so it's good to stop briefly this evening and take stock of how our little plot is slowly transforming 🍃
Re-plant all the cosmos or make flower crowns for Brian and myself??? Bri not as good a flower model as those celeb canines you see on @bloomandburn et al he’s got a lot to learn 🌼
