20 Jan Channelling spring and presenting our bespoke Valentine’s bouquet – the Peach Perfect!
We’re not normally the type of people who look back a lot but it does seem odd to think that 2 years ago, none of us had any idea of how all of our lives were about to be turned upside down in the most extraordinary way possible. We are grateful to still be here selling our flowers in what is now our 28th year of trading which is, of course, thanks to all of you for your unfailing support, especially over the last 2 years.
Moving on… Christmas has been firmly put away for another year and we are channelling spring as much as possible using lots of spring bulbs in many of our designs. Don’t forget that a scented hyacinth bulb brings joy to even the most untidy workspace! We have them in store potted up and ready to go.
Tulips are coming back into season and there are always new varieties to look out for, we love the parrot tulips especially whose petals are slightly ragged and twisted due to a natural virus bred into the bulbs. Ranunculas too are a classic spring flower and come in a myriad of colours with their delicately layered petals so reminiscent of a ballet tutu. Anemones are another spring flower we love to use and these three varieties of spring flowers look so pretty just on their own as well as in our beautiful mixed bouquets.
Of course the next date in the floral diary is Valentine’s Day and our regular customers will know that we broke with the antiquated tradition of selling red roses at Valentine’s Day about 20 years ago; instead we offer a bespoke bouquet designed freshly each year to a theme especially for Valentine’s Day. This year is no exception and we have named the bouquet the ‘Peach Perfect’!
The ‘Peach Perfect’ is a hand-tied arrangement made up with a pretty and stylish combination of seasonal flowers in tones of peach and cream with shades of lilac too, all backed with seasonal foliage; flowers will be chosen from roses, spray roses, lisianthus, clematis, tulips and phlox together with seasonal foliage. This most romantic of bouquets is presented in water, in our signature, tissue-lined box.
