I get a thrill from picking masses of flowers from the garden and filling big jugs without it leaving the garden bare! Best perennial flowers to grow for easy abundance? Alchemilla mollis, nepeta 'Six Hills Giant, campanula lactiflora Pritchard's variety, hydrangeas if you have enough room (I haven't but my friend Claire has - thank you Claire) ox eye daisies..
Do you have favourites for picking? Or perhaps you have a market where you can buy generous bunches cheaply - I was thrilled at Colombia Road flower market in London - or if you have a friend with an allotment....I can remember walking home from the allotment with my father carrying bunches of dahlias as big as myself.
Loved it then, and love it now. Makes me feel rich!
