This family-run business continues a tradition that is centuries old. The English bulrush is harvested from 17ft long punts during July and August from the banks of the rivers Ouse, Nene and Avon. The rushes are then stood upright against the hedges at the family farm where they dry naturally in the sun and wind. It is this natural drying process, outside subject to the changes in weather that gives the beautiful range of colours in the bulrush.
