Throughout the year and the changing seasons there are plenty of wonderful ways to brighten up your home with flowers.
With the excitement of Christmas and New Year the winter heralds beautiful woodland plants and bulbs, including hyacinths and narcissi incorporated in stunning garden rose bouquets and arrangements that set the tone for the seasons ahead.
Woodland wreaths and table centres filled with berries and ivory and cream flowers chirp up miserable winter days and the short evenings. Valentine’s Day can’t be forgotten in February where passion and love is symbolised in rich and luxurious red roses.
A favourite time of year when tulips and anemones become available in spectacular palettes that bring vibrant colours, including yellows and purples into your home.
Absolutely stunning hand-tied with garden scented garden roses mixed with seasonal foliage and herbs.
The summer offers the best in British flowers, with an abundant of wild flowers, roses, clematis, hydrangea, peonies and sweet peas to name but a few. In wonderful and cheery colours that ensure that the English garden border is brought alive in your home. At this time of year the flowers will not only brighten up your home but, if grown correctly, will fill your home with unrivalled scent. Mix your scented flowers with nature’s treats including blackberries and elderflower for an original slant of summer arrangements.
The shift in the season makes for deeper autumnal colours including yellow, oranges and woodland browns.
Foliage is key to a beautiful arrangement at this time of year as there is a wealth of natural birch and pine cones appearing. These earthy shades are complimented with cream and ivory flowers.
