Late summer blooms

What's in season?

This time last year we were overrun with zinnias. They are just making an appearance now in mum's garden but it has been harder to get them going this time round with the cool, damp weather. You could say it's what makes life interesting but it also makes it tricky to promise certain blooms at certain times for weddings and events. Precisely why I came up with the weekly posies concept using the best of what's in season each week. It's often a surprise to us all and keeps us on our toes! This week we have added the wonderful wild fennel which you might see out and about on verges at the moment. 

What's in the posy?

Helianthus, clary sage, weigela, black-eyed susan, aster, sunflower, phlox, phlox drummondii, lavender, eucalyptus, myrtle, ivy, golden rod, fennel, verbena bonariensis.

What's scented?

Lavender, myrtle, fennel, eucalyptus.
