Rain - and big downpours here squished Cornflowers and we are waiting for the next batches of field crops to get back up again after deluges of thunder and lightening! As always the rainbows followed...without the watering it wouldn't grow :)

If you are knee deep in weddings and wanting a few reserved flowers please let us know the Wednesday of the week before so we can do our best to gather your 'wish list' - after next week 

Please remember seasonality - always best to recommend a 'relaxed colour palette' to the brides who are wanting to focus on British blooms. This next two months are mostly pinks, purples, lilacs and whites... 

Standard Scented STOCKS full colour range including cream, purple, dark pink and white. Shorter stem length with shorter columns. White has been added as separate product for ease of ordering. please add a note if you need specific colours outside of white. 

Delphinium - Outdoor grown - selection of blues - whites almost gone :( 

Iris - Yellow and Blue  Will continue until November.

Alstro - Norfolk in good supply 

Foliages .... Nothing ....always a challenge this time of year!! Eucalyptus needs to be cut back April/May to ensure good growth ready for September. 

COMING SOON from the fields and glasshouses...

Nigella, Scabious .....Lisianthus week 33 onwards,  similar time for Antirrhinums. Please don't ask me for Sweet Peas as grower simply didnt grow any this year :(
