It's the height of summer, and the peak of the wedding season too. If you're planning for what flowers you want for your event in coming weeks or next year, here's what we've got currently in the ever popular theme of Pink and White.
The main flower for me in July is the Antirrhinum
We also grow the really popular smaller Pink Trumpets. This was used last weekend in Adele's Bouquet, and we can never grow enough of these. (seeds currently sold out, fingers crossed this is available for next season)
Other key flowers in July in Pink include Achillea, which we grow in lots of shades from blush and cream through the pinks to the bright Raspberry. Cornflowers, which are popular throughout the season, and Roses. While a lot of our Roses flush in June, and then only put out a few flowers during July and August, the multi cluster Rose Bonica, gives us colourful blooms at a regular interval.
As well as the key flowers that our brides recognise and ask for, we also have some great filler flowers. There's the wild carrot Daucus carota, and the pink form - Daucus Dara.
There's also the great Cynoglossum, which is like a Forget me not.
put together and added to with white, this is the effect for a pink and white DIY boxes order for the first weekend in July
