Anyone that knows me will know that flowers are ‘my thing’. Give me a bunch of boring supermarket flowers & i’ll have them rearranged & looking fab in no time (mmm I feel another blog post coming on). Anyway I digress. Have you heard of Blooming Green? No? Well … it’s a beautiful flower farm run by two lovely ladies Bek & Jen. It’s whole acre of flowers & foliage situated in a small corner of their family fruit farm in Loddington Lane, Linton near Maidstone & yesterday was their Blooming Green Autumn Open Day.

At their open days you get to mooch around the plot, drink tea and eat cake {important} and for a very reasonable £10 you can fill a container & pick anything you like. It’s a great opportunity to pick a variety of flowers & foliage that you may not have in your garden at home and create the most fantastic bouquet of flowers all by your very self.  

Blooming Green grow season flowers and so they are open until October {re opening again in April} and every Friday do a ‘pick your own’ afternoon.  Its a lovely therapeutic way to spend some time so it’s well worth a visit!
