Summer abundance

Summer sees flower plots brimming with glorious annuals nurtured from seed in spring and July heralds the start of the dahlias which will continue to crop in every size, colour, shape and form right through until autumn.

Flaming June

June sees annual flowers really start to put on a spurt ready for the amazing abundance that follows. From early June, roses and peonies pick up the baton from tulips to become the mainstay of arrangements until they in turn handover to dahlias and their supporting chorus line of glorious filler flowers later in July.
