Well, we have been busy, busy, busy!! What a floral feast we have been enjoying! Wow, Spring does put on a splendid show.
We now have Lilac in shades of violet and white.Waratahs are now in full season. They look striking with these Discolour which have an almost porcelain look.
Just in this week is Dogwood Blossom. Tall, elegant branches and delicate blooms bring Spring indoors. In for a short time, so now is the time to enjoy.
Another lovely pic of the freshest of Lilac that’s just come in. To make Lilac last longer try splitting the stems before arranging in vase. The woody stems make it difficult to draw up water, so opening up the stems helps them drink and stay hydrated.
Also in at the moment is Lily of the Valley. This small flower has the most heavenly scent. In Germany this flower is called May Bells because it flowers in May in the Northern Hemisphere. Here in Australia, it flowers now and you can find it in abundant supply for about 4 weeks. Once cut off from the bulb, it will last about 5 days. To make it last longer, try wrapping them in damp paper and storing in the fridge over night. They thrive in a cooler environment
Please feel free to come and see what’s in. At the moment the range is changing from week to week.
