Seasonal flowers – October

15:10:34 (12/10/2015) – Posted by Ella

Autumn has to be my favourite time of year.. After the lush greenery of summer and the brightness of its blooms, Autumn brings with it rustic reds, golden oranges and yellows and deep rich browns. This season is one of the most exiting and beautiful times of the year and there are so many gorgeous flowers available through the Autumn months.

Flower types – all flowers are perfect for sourcing at their best quality in October.

Delphiniums – Wild, tall and impressive. Easily grown yourself.  Commonly blue/purple.

Astillbe – Native to Asia and North America. Often pink/white flower.

Dahlia (lots of British grown cut stems available) – local provider www.

Lisianthus (Eustoma) (great equivalent used in replacement of Roses, wild and available in a wide variety of colours)

Freesia (sweet scented and perfect to bring a touch of summer/spring in to floral designs)

Hydrangea (beautiful, large headed, garden flowers. Also easily sourced by local British growers)

Roses (always a wide range of Rose varieties to source throughout the year)

Senecio (beautiful silver foliage

Calla/Zantedeschia (native to South Africa, perfect Autumnal flower, availble in lots of reds, burnt oranges and yellow colours)

 

Carol and Alex’s quirky wedding back in 2014 at Folly Farm perfectly sums up Autumn and its beautiful colours and flowers available at this time of year.
