June has seen freesias, hyacinth, tulips and iris.  We have also had early daffodils and some jonquils including beautiful fragrant earlicheer.  We have also had some lovely oramental kale.  We have not yet had any ranunculus or anemones.

 

Roses have been lovely, with the cooler temperatures bringing on larger heads and deeper colours.  

 

Blue butterfly delphinium has been the only delphinium available.  Snap dragons and stock have also been available.  We have been getting lovely sunflowers.

 

We have been able to get a miniature bouvardia and molucca balm from Melbourne.

 

We have been getting poppies, but I have not yet seen arum lilies.  Only imported hypericum has been available.

 

Orchids, oriental lilies, asiatic lilies, longiflorum lilies, carnations, alstromeria, and chrysanthemum have been available.  Local cymbidium orchids have started.

 

Banksias (coccinea, hookerania and menziesii) have been beautiful. Wax bud has been available but wax not yet.  Pink ice proteas and queen proteas have been available.

 

Magnolia and other lovely branches in bud have been available.
