Our staff have a keen eye for beauty along with a love for delightful scents and they have selected their top five favourite flowers that brighten up any winter day. Let’s explore which flowers have captured our hearts.

Tulips: Elegance in Every Petal

Tulips are a symbol of elegance and simplicity, making them a beloved choice for winter arrangements. Their smooth, cup-shaped petals come in a rainbow of colours, from soft pastels to vivid hues, which can complement any decor. Despite their delicate appearance, tulips are quite hardy and can thrive in cooler temperatures. They are perfect for adding a touch of spring to your home in the heart of winter.

Stocks: Fragrant and Full-Bodied

Stocks, also known as Matthiola, are cherished for their sweet, clove-like fragrance and dense, full blooms. These flowers bring a romantic and old-fashioned charm to any winter bouquet. They come in various shades, including pink, white, purple, and red, making them versatile for different themes and occasions. 

Poppies: Vibrant and Eye-Catching

Poppies are a true standout in the winter garden with their bright, papery petals and striking black centres. These flowers exude a cheerful and whimsical vibe, making them perfect for lifting spirits during the colder months. Available in various shades like red, orange, yellow, and white, poppies add a burst of colour to any setting.

Snapdragons: Graceful and Resilient

Snapdragons, or Antirrhinum, are known for their tall, spiky stems covered in tubular blooms that resemble a dragon’s face. They are a favourite for adding height and drama to winter arrangements. Snapdragons come in a variety of colours, from soft pastels to rich, deep tones, and they can thrive in cooler temperatures, making them ideal for winter.
