A chapter from the book Seed to Vase- a collection of stories
Alice Hare joined me on my seed to vase course. This is a chapter from the book about her story.
SEED TO VASE – A journey that involved so much more than growing flowers.
Participants came together from all corners of the UK, USA and Europe to join an 8 month course on growing cut flowers. From homes in many acres in Scotland, to apartment blocks in London with rented raised beds, they all had a common love of flowers.
But these people found so much more than that. This book details some of their lives and experiences as they learned not only how to grow cut flowers, but a great deal about themselves and one another. They found a community in which they all found inspiration and confidence, regardless of their initial reasons for joining the course.
Seed to Vase includes stories of bereavement, sadness, joy and laughter at a time when the world was facing restrictions in so many ways due to Covid-19. This was a time to rediscover nature and the simple joys in life.
Roz is the founder of Field Gate Flowers and is passionate about growing, harvesting and arranging seasonally-grown British blooms.
