Malucca balm, pepper berry, amaranth and hypericum have been available. Orchids, oriental lilies, asiatic lilies, longiflorum lilies, carnations, alstromeria, chrysanthemum, gladioli and sunflowers have been available.

February Flower Availability

By shop front
on 01 March, 2021

There is one thing that must be available on 14 February and that is red roses.  That also means that for the rest of the month red roses are rare and expensive.  Its rare beforehand as growers have cut back their rose bushes and trying to time the flowering in time for Valentine's Day, and rare afterwards as they pick their crops so hard to get the numbers up.

Roses in other colours have been readily available but with price increases leading up to the big day.  David Austins have been available for the start of February, but the hot weather has spoilt some crops.  There was a lovely range of mini roses available.

Lisianthus were beautiful and abundant, and a good flower choice for the hot weather.  The dahlias were lovely, in pinks, magentas, whites, oranges and yellows.  Hydrangea has been stunning towards the start of the month.

Singapore orchids are still available.  The phalaenopsis have been stunning, with a lovely colour range.  Local cymbidium have finished but imported cymbidium orchids are around.

With flight restrictions into Australia still in place due to Covid-19 some imported flowers can now be more difficult to come by and prices have increased to cover the additional transport costs for the suppliers.

Blue and purple delphinium has been thin on the ground (particularly the light blue), but the hybrid whites have been plentiful. 

Callas have been available in burgundy, oranges, yellows and creams. We are getting carnations, alstromeria, gerbera, chrysanthemum, babies breath and asters.

Bird of paradise started back this month, and plenty of gladioli just in time for Chinese New Year.

Flowering gum has been lovely this month. Proteas, banksias, repens, leucadendrons, grevillea, brunei and straw flowers have also been available.

Lilies (oriental, asiatics) have been plentiful at market.  We are not recommending oriental lilies for wedding bouquet in February as oriental lilies do not like temperatures over 30 degrees. They are fine for table arrangements in air-conditioned function rooms, or in a cool place in your home.  Asiatics are a bit better in the heat, although still not the best choice - lisianthus or orchids are a safer bet for a hot day.

Flowers generally available in February are -

Agapanthus (purple, white)
Alstromeria (white, pink, green, red, yellow, orange)
Amaranthus (green, red)
Anthirium (white, salmon, pink, lime, red)
Asiatic Lilies (white, pink, orange, yellow, red)

Valentines Day Canberra 2021

By shop front
on 04 February, 2021

This year Valentine’s Day is unlike any our little shop has prepared for. Since Covid-19 started everything has been unpredictable. In 2020 we saw everything from barely any sales during the bushfire and the start of the pandemic to being crazy busy during the peak of Covid in Canberra. February the 14th falls on a Sunday this year which also means people generally buy less flowers and instead opt for a lovely lunch at a local Cafe or dinner at one of our many amazing restaurants.  All of the previous calculations and methods for predicting how many flowers we need to order or how many deliveries we need to prepare for has basically gone out of the window and instead we will be planning to gather our usual extend shop family and prepare for as much as we can and hope for the best. Keeping this in mind we have decided to only offer a limited number of deliveries and instead of having a cut off date we will cut them off when we reach capacity so please get your orders in early this year and please shop local this Valentine's day!

October flower availability

By shop front
on 06 December, 2020

As restrictions around Australia have eased with Covid-19 we have been very busy delivering flowers around Canberra. It has been so humbling to see all of the message of love and support you have been sending out with your flowers and we are so grateful for all of the support we have been getting as a small business in Canberra.

In October we are continuing to see some very lovely local blooms. Imported flowers have been a bit trickier due to the lack of flights coming in and the high costs involved for the growers to import the flowers.

Locally grown Chincherinchee have started this month and are looking very nice. Tree peonies are expected to start in the 2nd half of the month but the standard peonies have not yet been available.

We have continued to have beautiful ranunculus the first half of the month but by mid month they are expected to  become scarce with a very limited colour range.

Freesia, hyacinth, tulips and iris have continued to be available.

Sweet pea and poppies have still been available on and off throughout October and have been a little difficult to source. 

We have been getting a beautiful selection of both locally grown roses and imports.  All the roses have been beautiful and of high quality.  Mainly imported Davids Austin style roses have been available, although we did manage to source some locally grown David Austins and although these were lovely the stems were quite short. 

Gerberas are beautiful, and available in abundance.

Blue butterfly delphinium has been available in royal blue, light blue and white.  Snap dragons and stock have also been beautiful.

Orchids, oriental lilies (limited), asiatic lilies, carnations, alstromeria and chrysanthemum have been available.  Local cymbidium orchids finished this month.

Beautiful waratah is flushing this month in reds, whites and greens. Sea holly, blushing bride, banksias (coccinea, hookerania and menziesii), beautiful red and green leacadendron, berzillea and gumnuts have been available. Red wax bud and wax flower have both been available.  Pink and brown boronia is available. Proteas, including kings, have been available and flannel flower started this month.

Wattle foliage has started to become scarce.

Blossom has finished.  Hydrangea has started the 1st half of this month but as always it's only available in limited supply and mainly in white though other colours are expected towards the end of the month.

Lilac and heleborus has been available, along with lavender and daisies. The locally grown lavender has been beautiful. Birds of paradise has been available.

Earlicheer, jonquils and daffodils finished the first week of this month.

Local arums (white, marshmallow and green godess) are available, but only a few imported callas have been available.

Ivy berry and berzillia have been available.

Magnolia, camellia were beautiful at the beginning of the month but new growth has made it scarce by the end of October. Vibernum started the month a little soft and with yellow tones, but has improved significantly as we head towards the end of the month.

Poppies, freesias, hyacinth, lavender, tulips and iris have all been around in July.  We have also had daffodils and plenty of earlicheer jonquils. Ranunculas are just starting out but have so far been lovely.

Dahlias are sadly coming to an end for the season.

Roses have been readily available, with imports in a new range of colours making up the shortfall of local production. Blue butterfly delphinium has been the only delphinium available, in both darker blue and lighter blue.  Snap dragons and stock have also been beautiful.

Arabs eye, daphne, violets or lily of the valley are not yet available.

Malucca balm, pepper berry, amaranth and hypericum have been available. Orchids, oriental lilies, asiatic lilies, longiflorum lilies, carnations, alstromeria, chrysanthemum, gladioli and sunflowers have been available. 

Local cymbidium orchids have been fantastic, in a very lovely colour range. 

Blushing bride, erica, banksias (coccinea, hookerania and menziesii), beautiful red and green leacadendron, tetra nuts and gumnuts have been available. Red wax bud and wax flower have both been available.  Proteas have been available in a beautiful range of varieties, although not in great numbers.

Already this month we've had early jonquils, freesias, hyacinth, tulips and iris.  We have also had some lovely oramental kale in beautiful purples and greens and although we have not yet had any ranunculus we have started getting in beautiful anemones, poppies and later in the month some very beautiful sweet pea.

The roses have been lovely, with the cooler temperatures bringing on larger heads and deeper colours and lovely locally grown babies breath has started.

Imported Peonies have been available this month and have been available in stunning colours tho their price tags are high the quality of the imports has been quite good towards the end of the month.

Birds of paradise have already been available for a few weeks.

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

Orchids, asiatic lilies, longiflorum lilies, carnations, alstromeria, and chrysanthemum have been available. Our oriental lily supplier has had trouble on their farm in NSW with their pink lily batch this last few weeks but pink is readily available from other growers tho the quality of our NSW grower is hard for them to match. 

Local cymbidium orchids have started and are arriving in a stunning array of colours.

Banksias (coccinea, hookerania and menziesii) have been beautiful. Wax bud has been available but wax not yet.  Pink ice proteas, nerifolia protea and queen proteas have been available.  Teatree is abundant as are leucadendron.  We have started getting gymea flowers and blushing bride.  Managed to get a few bunches of kangaroo paw, and gum foliage has been especially lovely.  Tetra nuts and gum nuts have been readily available. We are still getting larger head king proteas in pink but grevillea has been a little scarce.

Vibernum, camellia, woolley bush, native cherry and afterdark foliages have been available with the magnolia from our Victoria grower especially lovely with beautiful dark velvet browns on the backs of the leaves.
