Winter Flowers can cheer up anyone when the darkest and coldest season is upon us. Banish those Winter blues by adding a dash of colour and fragrance to your home with some floral displays. Also, don't forget your loved ones - a bunch of seasonal flowers delivered to them will brighten their lives. You can choose from seasonal colours in red and white, remind them of Summer with a tropical flavour or really warm their winter with warm and fiery oranges. This is the season when there are few natural colours outside so it's the perfect time enjoy flowers in the home. Please also see our separate section for Christmas Flowers.
The Winter season's flowers include: Carnation, Chrysanthemum, Freesia, Forsythia, Gypsophila, Gentian, Holly Berries, Iris, Lily, Orchid, Rose, Stephanotis, Snow Drop, and Winter Jasmine. Winter is also when early bulb and classical flowers such as Tulips, Hyacinths and Amaryllis start appearing.
Of course many flowers are available all year round and out of season. It's worth trying to stick to this seasons flowers as they are often fresher and offer better value for money. Your local florist should be able to advise you of what's in season. Remember you can also collect the beautiful foliage that grows in abundance in winter and add it to your display. This will add volume and colour to give your arrangement a real seasonal look.
To prolong the life of your flowers try to avoid placing them in drafts or close to central heating radiators remembering to change the water at regular intervals.
