Adelaide started her Secret Garden 4 years ago. After studying art at university, she then worked in a couple of galleries, one of which enabled her to test her installation skills using alternative materials. Although she was craving the dark and mysterious woods and the walled garden she grew up in. So Adelaide and her mum started to grow flowers by experimenting, and with mother nature on their side started to produce some amazing fragrant gems.
We are very passionate members of Flowers from the Farm and support or growers as much as we can by using the locally grown blooms. Not only do these blooms offer a much stronger fragrance but they also look much more natural embracing the quirky wriley stem mother nature blessed them with.
Adelaide is also big on bees in the Ochills garden. She host’s a beekeeper with a number of hives in the fields surrounding The Secret Garden, have a jam-jaw of sugar water available and grows purposefully to extend the bees’ summers as far as possible. Hearing their gentle hum in the warmer months is our idea of heaven.
