My favourite flower for 2015/16 is Sweet William.  Sweet William is a dianthus and has the same strength and long vase life of his big sister the carnation.  Great value as it is often grown outdoors, it is on the market throughout the summer and is at home in a jam jar or a bridal bouquet, bringing it’s sweet little charm to all arrangements.  Lots more Sweet William inspiration on our Pinterest board!

It’s just a few days away from that all important day that one must really not forget about! Whether you’re a daughter, son, husband, grandchild or good friend, you’ll more than likely be showing someone how much you appreciate everything they do this Mother’s Day. A vibrant hand-tied bouquet will really brighten up their day or pull out all the stops with a luxury hand-tied bouquet. Order from us here and we’ll make sure you’re the favourite this Sunday!
