This year gave me the opportunity to slow down a bit more and grow more flowers and herbs than previous years and I started playing around with drying them – hanging or dehydrating method. I also wrote my Guide to Meadow Grasses this summer too identifying all of the most common grasses (email me if you’d like me to send this to you) and collected grasses from my allotment to dry with my flowers and seedheads. I noticed the colour patterns and two strong colour palettes came out of my collections – one of which was these beautiful deep purples of nigella seedheads, marjoram, scabious, lavender and yorkshire fog and common bent grasses. I have created a small number of these dried wild posies for you to decorate your home. They look beautiful in my new sloe blue ceramic vase or in a simple glass milk bottle or even a tin can. Each posy comes with a handprinted gift card explaining what flowers and grasses are in your posy and is tied with deep purple raffia to complement the posy. They are carefully packaged in wood wool and a large box to ensure the blooms aren’t damaged in the post. As they are handmade, each posy will vary slightly.
Size: ca 25 to 30 flower and grass stems per posy
Colours: Purple/Green mix. Yellow/Brown mix also available
