Are my flowers currently in season?

Are my favourite flowers currently in season?

 

This is a question I am asked all the time, and it is a good one.  Many flowers have limited seasons, but due to growers installing hot-houses, and glass-houses, with controlled temperatures, and lighting, some species and varieties are now available for a significant part of the year.

Some flowers and greenery have to be grown outside (ie natives grow on large trees)so they have a defined season.

Due to the marvellous weather in North Queensland, many of our local growers are able to grow flowers through the winter when the southern markets are unable to, which gives florists a longer time to access the flowers you want.

Also, it is possible to access the international market to obtain your preferred flower – at a price of course.  The Colombian Roses and carnations that we have been purchasing recently are just amazing, and the quality exceeds anything I have seen in my time as a florist.

If you are looking for a specific flower,  call in to check with us when it is available.  We are more than happy to help with this information.
