Seasonal Flowers

As I write this the month of October is just one week away and with it will come a wide range of seasonal flowers that you are going to be able to decorate your home or garden with. If you are the type of person who loves to keep up to date with the latest seasonal flowers then look no further.

  • Alstroemeria
    This flower is also known as a Peruvian Lily and comes in a wide range of colours from yellow, white and orange to red, pink and purple. They are a very bright and colourful flower and will look amazing in your living room now that the Autumn season is upon us. We recommend planting this type of flower half in the sun and the other half in the shade making sure that they are 60cm apart. If you are putting Alstroemeria into a vase then make sure you change out the water every 4 to 5 days.
  • Bouvardia
    This flower is part of the Rubiaceae family and contains around 50 different species of evergreen herbs and shrubs. They will grow to around 0.6 to 1.5 metres tall. These flowers can be placed both inside your home and in your garden.
  • Carnation
    It is unknown where the carnation originates from, some people have claimed that it comes from the Mediterranean, however, this is unknown due to the flower being around for the past 2,000 years. To take care of your carnation you are going to want to plant it in neutral to slightly alkaline soil.
  • Helianthus
    Better known as sunflowers. These flowers can grow up to 300 centimetres and look fantastic in your garden, bringing some much needed bright colour to your backyard to light up your garden this coming Autumn.
