SPRING is a time for some wonderful BRITISH flower options… yes, ok, it’s not Summer which provides endless varieties but these flowers are SEASONAL to now and smell divine!!
This post was created out of frustration and sadness after seeing what can only be described as a, wholly false and inaccurate “seasonal flower chart”, on a prolific wedding blog! I appreciate that non British flower florists can buy, for example, Roses all year round (I can’t and won’t) but to state that Daffodils are in season in August is totally misleading! It is ok to not to know what is season when- that’s my job- but for blogs, magazines and the like to publish something that is clearly made-up and so far from the truth is irresponsible; our Brides and Grooms to be deserve better than that !
So, for what it’s worth, I thought I’d do something about it and help to rectify the flower myths! Of course temperamental weather and crop failures can impact what is available when but I wanted to create a guide for Brides and Grooms which is much more informative, realistic and seasonal for our British flowers! Enjoy!
