A cut above: The Real Cut Flower Garden specialises in flowers you won't find at your average florist's
Saturday 15 May 2010
Making a living out of what you like doing best is a good wheeze. Charlie Ryrie loves growing stuff and launched her new business, The Real Cut Flower Garden, to justify growing even more. She saw, also, a gap in the cut flower market. "We mail out bunches of the kind of flowers you might pick in your own garden, if you had one," she explains. "It's very different from the stuff you find in the average florist's shop. And our stuff hasn't flown halfway round the world to get to the customer." She cuts much of her greenery from the hedges round her Herefordshire garden; the pony paddock behind is lined out with vast quantities of annuals and herbaceous perennials.

Of all the anecdotes to treasure in Tuesday's marvellous article by my colleague Simon Usborne about 100 years of Britain's intelligence services, my favourite was probably the one about MI6 moving offices, sometime during the Cold War. Before the move, the MI6 offices were shown to prospective new tenants, among whom was a party from the Russian Trade Delegation. When the security officer found out who was coming to view the property, he rushed round telling everyone to act sharpish and take the maps down from the walls. All of which is gloriously reminiscent of a sitcom little-remembered these days, but of which I was very fond 35 years ago, called The Top Secret Life of Edgar Briggs and starring the young David Jason as an inept spy.
