      British Flowers in Season for Winter

      British Flowers in Season for Winter

      Rainy, windy days are definitely a big feature of winter and you are probably just dreaming to snuggle down with a comfy blanket around a cosy wood burning stove.

      Winter in UK can be gloomy at times and definitively cold but at  the same time you can still find some stunning seasonal flowers and foliage to warm the soul. 

      Are you wondering which seasonal British flowers are in season during this period?

      Like most growing living things, British grown flowers are affected by the seasons, the weather, and other regional natural changes. 

      As a result some of the flowers listed in this Winter flowers seasonal guide may not be available at certain times.

      Tips For Going Ethical This Christmas

      Tips For Going Ethical This Christmas

      Winter is on its way and that goes to say that Christmas is near.

      The gleaming autumn shades of orange, gold, red, and brown are going to soon disappear and possibly all our trees are going to be decorated with white snow.

      The festive season is fast approaching and we have the perfect solution for your gifts..

      Flowers, yes!

      Flowers are the perfect way to show how much you appreciate your loved ones. It's something about fresh flowers and the aroma of these gorgeous bunches that takes the cake!

      So for the next set of questions - what are the best flowers that you can add to your list of Christmas gift ideas and on Christmas flowers delivery in the UK, we’ve taken care of it too!

      We’ve specially curated a few bouquets that you can order on the go as your Christmas gift.

      Attention on the climate emergency and the sense of ethical consumerism is increasing with time. 


      So while most of the readily available bouquets out there are imported, this bouquet is made up of British grown flowers as it is considered to emit around 95% less CO2 emissions than the imported ones.

      Additionally, they are wrapped with biodegradable hydrating fabric & reused coffee bags of hessian so you can celebrate a guilt-free green Christmas!

      Now, let’s go over a few more tips for a Eco-friendly Christmas - 

      • Choose Decorations Wisely - While decorations are the paramount part of Christmas, plastic decors just go down as waste once the party is over. So this year, go with long-lasting decorations that are environmental friendly and can be used again next year. Fabric and glass ornaments are great substitutes for plastic, and recycled wood is a great way to go too. 
      • Dinner The Right Way - While ending up cooking too little is the worst nightmare for any host, ending up with a lot of leftovers isn’t pretty either. Buy according to your guest list, and cook according to what seems right for the amount of people joining for the meal. If you still end up with some leftovers consider including the veggies in a recipe the next day. 
      • Send E-Cards - Rather than going for the paper cards, choose e-cards or other digital channels to connect with your loved ones. If you still prefer going traditional with the handwritten card, recycle old cards or paper. 

      We hope we have given you something to think about at this special time of year which can be good for you and for our planet!  Here's to a very special Christmas period- goodness knows we all deserve it! 

      Happy holidays!

      Late autumn, the nights are drawing in and it's the perfect period for settling down in the evening with a mug of our favourite hot chocolate.

      Its nature's last show of colour before winter and the cold weather sets in and it is wonderful to going for walks in the woods underneath the glowing colours of Autumn leaves.

      Seasonal Flowers : Autumn

      Seasonal Flowers : Autumn

      Ethical British Autumn Flowers

      The colour and flowers of Autumn are truly magical and we love them!

      The leaves are starting to change & the golden light make their colours stunning, the days become shorter and we all getting ready for the change of season. Winter walks followed by cosy fires await!

      Autumnal blooms colour are definitely reflecting the changing mood of the season, rich reds, refreshing orange, golden shades and crimson & shades of brown. 

      The Autumn flowers stars:

      DALHIA 

      Dalhia Flowers

      The national flower of Mexico, dahlias bloom all the way through autumn, keeping us happy once the flood of summer colour starts to wane. The varieties can look very different - expect to find dahlias that look like pom poms, others that look like spiky stars and some that are so big (think 35cm in diameter!) they are known as ‘dinner plate dahlias’.

      Dahlias are thought to represent dignity and gratitude. They aren’t scented, but they make up for this by flowering in every colour. The trendy Cafe au Lait dahlia is a pale peachy cream that looks incredible teamed with blush roses and burgundy amaranthus.

      ASTER

      Aster Flowers

      The aster is a unique daisy-like wildflower that’s known for its star-shaped flower head. Aster are thought to represent love and wisdom. With a rich history in Greek mythology, it’s said that the aster was created by the tears of the Greek goddess, Astraea.

      One day, she was so upset by how few stars there were in the dark sky, that she began to cry. As she wept, her tears fell to the ground and turned into star-shaped aster flowers. Thus, the flower was named after her, with aster meaning star.

      Aster are also known in the floristry industry as "frost flowers" thanks to their strength in growing during the cold month of the year.

      CHRYSANTHEMUM 

      Chrysanthemum

      The name chrysanthemum comes from a combination of the Greek words chrysos, meaning gold, and anthos, meaning flower. 

      There are several types of chrysanthemums available today and, depending on the variety, they flower during different times of the year.

      Chrysanthemums are associated with optimism, wealth, friendship and peace.

      Chrysanthemums were first brought to Japan by Buddhist monks in 400 AD.  This flower was so loved that they added it to the Imperial Crest. 

      The Japanese are known to still celebrate this flower by hosting annual exhibitions.  According to feng shui,( the Chinese art of connecting  and balancing our interiors with the energy of the natural world to improve the energy of our living spaces) chrysanthemums are associated with happiness and joy.

       

      CROCOSMIA

      Crococosmia

      The name crocosmia comes from the Greek words for saffron (krokos) and smell (osme), because dipping dry crocosmia flowers in water apparently releases a saffron-like aroma.

      Common names for crocosmia are coppertips and falling stars.

      Crocosmia is one of the plants that originated from Africa, but are cultivated all over the world.

      The cultivated diversity is enormous with more than 400 varieties available in the world.
