Did you know, just like vegetables and meat, flowers have a ‘season’? When you buy flowers in season, they are grown and cut when they are naturally thriving, so they are at their strongest, biggest and most beautiful. Buying flowers when they are naturally in season also lessens the impact on the environment as they require less heating, cooling and feeding than artificially grown flowers. Certain flowers are in demand all year round but if you want to follow the natural rhythm of the seasons, consult our handy guide.
