Our adventures in floristry...

Stems of the Month: September

Well hello there Autumn!

OK I fully admit to being fickle, swapping from one love of the season to the next at the drop of a hat. But there really is something about the start of Autumn that makes me a little giddy! Maybe its the fact we once again get to wear those comforting colourful knits, or the thought of log fires and a house full of rich colourful flowers but hey, the season changes are truly wonderful for a florist. 

Those transitional hues of peach melba and soft terracotta with a hint of rust making an appearance. This months stems capture the essence of the change in seasons from summer to autumn charmingly and are featured in our soft terracotta bouquet and baskets

Rose carpe diem

This rosé has a delicate salmon pink hue. Fresh, delicate and fruity, with aromas of rose petal, raspberry, peach and strawberry.

Ammi

Easy grown and very sophisticated, Ammi majus, also known as Bishop's Flower bears large flat heads of lacy white flowers.

Dahlia

Needing little introduction, Dahlia's are one of the stars of the late summer garden. Flowering from August through to the frosts they are exuberant and full of colour.

Dried ruscus

Charming and alluring, these delicate tall stems add the perfect element of harvest to our September arrangements.

Lisianthus

An elegant and highly versatile flower available in a rainbow of colours, it is also a long lasting cut flower, keeping fresh for up to 2 weeks.

Rose cream persuasion

A buttery yellow garden rose with an abundance of petals, they are a real presence in any arrangement.

Helichrysum

Also known as Everlasting or Straw Flowers, they really do seem to last forever, making an excellent dried flower. Deriving from the same family as the sunflower, the papery flowers give a beautiful natural colour.
