January may not be the brightest or most appealing month of the year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it something special with some seasonal blooms! It’s actually quite surprising how many flowers are in season in January, including a number of people’s all time favourites. With Spring just around the corner, a beautiful selection is becoming available in an array of colours making the early starts to the wholesalers a lot more enticing in the hours of darkness!
Scroll down for some seasonal floral inspiration to beat those January blues and to give you an idea of what is available during the early months of the year to be organised and select your favourites for your up and coming Winter wedding (eeeeek, exciting!)
