Spring time is a special time of year in Britain. As the first flowers appear they signal the end of the winter season and the beginning of Spring. One of the most obvious first signs of Spring is the emergence of daffodils in our gardens.
Springs flowers should be mixed with the more exotic and ethnic varieties such as Orchids and Amaryllis. Choose flowers with contrasting colours and use lace and spices as accessories. Colours should include neutrals and bold, bright and dark colours.
Spring flowers include:
- Amaryllis, Azalea, Broom, Bluebell, Camellia, Carnation, Cherry blossom, Clematis, Crocus, Chrysanthemum,
- Daffodil, Daisy, Forsythia, Freesia, Gladioli, Heather, Honeysuckle, Iris, Jasmine, Lilac, Lily,
- Mimosa, Orchid, Polyanthus, Primrose, Rhododendron, Stephanotis, Tulip and Waxflower.
- Hyacinths, lily of the valley, violets, pansies, lilies, gerbera daisies, pwillow, and flowering branches such as apple and cherry blossoms.
Potted plants in season include: tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, azaleas, Easter lilies, daisies, violets, and kalanchoe
Remember, the emphasis is also on what the flowers are displayed in. This season it should be pottery, bakeware and porcelain. A carefully chosen receptacle could make or break your display.
