Hello my name is Becky Branch from Branch and Bloom
I have always loved flowers. I think I inherited this love affair from both my Grandma and Mum who have shared a passion for botanics, both painting and planting beautiful blooms in the garden or illustrating them on canvas. After studying, living and working in Bristol for over ten years my husband, our two year old son along with a four month old puppy made the move to Somerset. Joe and I both grew up in the country and had always hoped to move back to a more rural location. We loved Bristol but had always dreamed of having a garden to grow flowers in and for our son to play in (it will be interesting to see how the two mix!)
I adore flowers in the home and really admire floral design and arrangements. I thought I would set the challenge to try and grow my own flowers for myself and for others to enjoy. The variety of flowers available on the high street can be rather limited and often come with not only a hefty price tag but a rather large carbon footprint. It would be so nice if we could grow more flowers locally in this country, creating seasonal displays that not only help the environment but help our native pollinators and wildlife too.
This is our first season growing flowers and we are starting from scratch. It’s going to take a lot of hard work but we are planing to provide blooms by early to mid June. This blog aims to bare all on my green adventures as they develop throughout the year.
You will be able to find our flowers at The Hub in Wookey and 38 Market Street, Wells in Somerset. Branch and Bloom is now a seedling member of Flowers From The Farm and our flowers should be blooming by early summer. We will also be growing flowers for weekly bouquet subscriptions throughout our growing season, deliveries and local events. Email or call for more information and to enquire about Branch and Bloom flowers.
