The Old Forge
The Homegrown Flower Company was started in 2009 by passionate gardener and florist Zelie Billins. A few wigwams of sweet peas and a couple of rows of dahlias next to the veg plot in 2004 sparked an obsession which is showing no signs of abating! The little cut flower patch in the corner of the garden is long gone, to be replaced by a field of flowers which celebrates the beauty and magic of nature and the changing seasons. In 2014 Zelie was joined by fellow flower obsessive Amelia Holmwood and they are busy making plans for the coming season, including trialling ever more varieties of flowers, and creating the longest sweet pea tunnel in Sussex!
