What's In Season - Summer
British Summertime if you go by the astronomical calendar, starts on the Summer equinox, the 21st June (and my wedding anniversary FYI), but as a more general rule is the months of June, July & August. The frosts are over, the skies are blue & the bees are buzzing. Just look in your own garden and you should see lots of colourful flowers blooming left right & centre. It really is the ideal time of year for a florist as the options are endless. If you're organising a wedding it's a great season not only for the flower choice but also for the weather - fingers crossed!
Here are some ideas of what is in season in Summer*:
Achillea, Agapanthus, Allium, Alstromeria, Ammi, Antirrhinum, Aster, Astilbe, Astrantia, Brodiea, Calendula, Campanula, Cornflower, Cosmos, Dahlia, Delphinium, Echinacea, Echinops, Eryngium, Forget me not, Foxglove, Freesia, Geum, Gladioli, Gypsophillia, Helenium, Hydrangea, Iris, Ixia, Lavender, Lilac, Lily, Lupin, Nicotiana, Nigella, Peony, Phlox, Poppy, Ranunculus, Rose, Salvia, Scabious, Scented pinks, Statice, Stocks, Sweet Pea, Sweet Williams, Verbena, Zinnia
