Last week I started off the sweet peas in a propagator at home, luckily didn’t sow them in the ground which despite this morning’s sunshine is still frozen solid. Now I’m staring out of a window at the blue sky when I should be staring at a computer screen.
I’m editing pictures of cut flower growers. A series of portraits commissioned by the Garden museum by Lambeth Bridge in London (where they are currently being exhibited). Shot in January the photographs are a glimpse of Britain’s cut flower industry. An industry under pressure from the supermarkets and their need for non-seasonal suppliers, sourcing flowers from all over the world.
I visited six different growers in Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
Here are some pictures from the show – it is up until April 5th.
Sorry if I seem short of words today.
