The wonderful thing about our changing seasons is the abundance of different varieties of flowers we can grow throughout the year. From Daffodils and Tulips in early spring, to Cosmos and Dahlias in late summer and Chrysanthemums in autumn, there is always something to look forward to.
Like art, flowers are subjective and every individual will have a preference on style, colour palette and fragrance. Some of my favourites are the big blousey Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses and Dahlias, but i'm also a big fan of the airy Ammi, Achillea and grasses that add a lightness to flower arrangements.
As a garden to vase florist, you can be confident that my flowers represent what is in season at any particular point during the year. I hope that with this seasonality, you may enjoy flowers that are a little less seen, but are exquisitely beautiful. They also haven't travelled thousands of miles and don't come wrapped in plastic. There is occasionally the perception that British flowers don't last as long as imported flowers, however it's important to know that imported flowers are often treated with fertilisers, pesticides and preservatives. Whilst it's true that some flowers don't last as long as others, they more than make up for it in scent, movement and uniqueness which is why they are included in the growing plan. I will always advise on how to keep your flowers looking their best for as long as possible and you can take comfort in the knowledge that your flowers are not treated with any nasties and will happily give back to your garden if popped into the compost to rot down when they've gone over.
If you have a specific request for a certain style of bouquet or have a love of a particular flower, I will always do everything I can to accommodate.
