Autumn and winter

As days shorten the abundance of summer subsides. Dahlias keep up their show well into September alongside asters and the last generous annuals like cosmos daisies, rudbeckias and chrysanthemums. The first bite from Jack Frost heralds the end of the outdoor growing year and the start of preparations for winter and the new season to come.

Find beauty in colour and texture

When we say farewell to the blowsy blooms which have delighted us all season long, it’s time to stop and appreciate the smaller things up close. For many farmer florists, its time to call on stunning foliage, dried ingredients and British flowers grown under protection by larger scale growers who offer cold-weather crops like narcissi, tulips, alstroemeria and anemones during the winter months.
