Homegrown British summer flowers for our flower subscription posies

Homegrown agapanthus

We're pleased to have our morning gathered agapanthus in this week's posies. This plant is native to Southern Africa but if you've spent time in New Zealand you might also recognise it from growing tall along the road sides where it has become naturalised. In Australia it is known as 'Star of Bethlehem' as it makes an appearance for their summer Christmas-time.

Just like buses, we've got two more true blue ingredients this week and they are homegrown eryngium (sea holly) and cornflowers from a second-sowing. To balance out the blues we have a pink hydrangea - so you could say our posy is gender neutral!
