Ducks and Daffodils
Ducks and Daffodils is a small scale organic flower-growing business based in York. I believe that British flowers are fresher, better value and more sustainable than imported cut flowers. I use environmentally friendly methods of production which respect wildlife and the soil itself. No harmful chemicals are used, packaging is biodegradable, and I try to always “Reduce, Recycle and Reuse”! From April 2013 my flowers will be grown on Soil Association certified organic land.
I grow a variety of traditional annuals including cosmos, dahlias, larkspur, cornflowers and sunflowers, as well as perennials such as astrantia, achillea, helenium, eryngium and rudbeckia. Sweet peas are a favourite and plentiful during summer. I try to have seasonal flowers and foliage available all year round. I aim to have dried flowers and grasses available over the winter months.
I can make informal bunches or posies of my seasonal cottage garden flowers to order. I can also provide mixed buckets of freshly picked flowers to be arranged as required for weddings, natural funerals, parties and events. You are welcome to visit the site by prior appointment to choose your own flowers for a specific occasion. These services are also available to local bed & breakfasts, hotels, shops and cafes. Enquiries from florists or wholesalers are very welcome.
