Olympic Sunflowers featured in our outlets this weekend; any excuse to include the happy flowers and celebrate the amazing Team GB medal haul! It also seems many people have dashed off on their holidays whilst restrictions are lifted. 

NEW ! Scented Stocks (Late Batch)

  • Perfectly timed for weddings. 

NEW ! Asters

  • All the colours in the range - pink, dark pink, red, white and blue tipped. 

Agapanthus - Blue & White

  • Moving to outdoor crops so smaller heads but same 80cm+ stem length.

NEW! Helichrysum

  • Another vintage comeback; the strawflower can be purchased dried or fresh.  

Gypsophila

  • Dried Gyp is also in stock as is the preserved with glycerin version.

  • There's a gap in production volumes which means not enough product for Evolve. Very limited this week. 

Gladioli

  • These tall colourful spears are edging the way back to being gorgeously on trend again as several mail order flower brands are promoting them. Red/ orange, pink, purple, yellow and white. Please note varieties within the colour may vary from week to week. 

Scented Pinks

  • Very limited stock available.

Hydrangea

  • Still plodding along nicely.

Sunflowers

  • Vincents Choice  and Sunrich continue.

Foliages

  • Irish foliage appear to be on  form with some lovely lush looking Buxus,  bottlebrush and silver sussex. Also imported Cocculus and Salal. 

Final Field Notes

  • Carthamus and seeded Nigella coming through.

  • Achillea finished and Amaranthus trailing looked stunning.

  • Lilies and Iris will continue until October.
