A calendar of seasonal flowers

Flowers are mainly season specific. Growing what naturally thrives in our soils and climate is good for nature and creates a haven for wildlife. It means no ‘flower airmiles’ and no carbon footprint. It often means enjoying those flowers for a very fleeting time and waiting until the following year to be able to enjoy them again – but surely that’s what makes seasonal flowers so special.

Our Calendar of Seasonal Flowers will give you an idea of just some of the varieties of flowers you may find in your floral design, along with seasonal foliage. As the growing of flowers is dependent on nature and the weather the below may vary from year to year. Additionally, Sarah may source British grown flowers from another trusted and reputable grower due to this very reason, or if the scale of an event dictates.
