GYPSOPHILA OR BABY’S BREATH
Depending on the time of year, gypsophila is not a cheap flower, particularly late March early April, and before Christmas when supply is reduced. Very vintage but ask your florist about price first. Almost all year round
"White - purity, Pink - grace, Peach - modesty, Burgundy - unconscious beauty, Red - love, Purple - enchantment, Orange - fascination, Yellow - infidelity." Roses are available all year round.
ROSES – DAVID AUSTIN
David Austin roses are awesome. They have a bigger head than ordinary roses and are known for their perfume although commercial roses don't have quite the same strength of smell. Twice the price of ordinary roses. Available in 3 colours - buttery cream, peach and mid pink. All year round
Singapore orchids come on a stem with multiple blooms almost all year round. They are great in corsages and boutonnaires. Yes, they are imported from Singapore and on the odd occasion are ruined in the fumigation process, fortunately not often. (Unavailable late December early January)
Native to New Zealand in summer - grows wild. Toi toi can look great in big arrangements such as urns. Feb/March/April/May/June/July/August
