The proprietor of Bayntun Flowers, “Polly is a grower and a florist (who studied medieval art) so it seems right that the scene in her walled garden hints not only at the industry of Brueghel, but the flowery allure of Botticelli,” writes Kendra.

“Polly Nicholson herself retrained in horticulture at the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, having had a career at Sotheby’s,” writes Kendra. “On moving from London with her family, Polly knew that she wanted to grow flowers for cutting, without predicting the extent to which her ambitions would take over."
