You grow everything you sell in different colours rather than mono colours of wheat and it attracts bees and other insects."We get lovely letters from people saying what we have done for them.

It is the brides who buy our confetti for their weddings."Their bespoke service has been used by various celebrities including Madonna and Guy Ritchie and Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas.Athlete Jessica Ennis used the confetti while marrying Andy Hill and Take That used it during their Progress Tour.Prince Harry also chose the firm's pale pink delphinium confetti to throw over Princes Charles and Camilla at their wedding in 2005.Mr Hudson said: "We got a mystery phone call asking us for a lot of confetti very quickly and could we supply it."Then two black cars turned up and the people in them paid for the confetti and went."I knew someone who was at the wedding and afterwards they told me our confetti was used.

It was all very cloak and dagger."ENDS
