What do Shirley Temple and coral have in common?

Two types of peony Warm temperatures and downpours this week have brought everything on quickly in the garden. We planted a lot of seedlings at the plot over the weekend including zinnia, sweet williams, cornflowers, cosmos, carnations, sweet peas, antirrhinum, and stocks and some have put on a lot of growth already. The coral peonies in this week's posy are popping open before our eyes. There's another peony variety tucked in there too called Shirley Temple, a double rose pink bloom. These ones are a lot tighter so should take a little longer to open up. Keep a look out!I'm going to be creating another yellow and blue themed posy for delivery 10th June. All proceeds from the sales will...

Flowers for Ukraine

Are flower subscriptions worth it?

Flowers have been exchanged as gifts ever since the Ancient Egyptian times. They are given in celebration of a special occasion, to make someone feel happier and cared for, to lift spirits in illness or after a bereavement and as a symbol of love and affection.  Flower bouquets are given as a one-off gesture and to provide instant joy and impact to the recipient. A flower subscription is different as the recipient continues to receive flowers at regular intervals for a set period of time or from that point onwards. Typically it best suits someone who is a "real flower-lover".  The great thing about a flower subscription is that it is a thoughtful way to show ongoing affection for the recipient from the giver. It is a...
