shop for flowers seasonally

Celebrate the seasons with seasonal flowers

I love cut flowers and I buy my favorite blooms even if they are not in season. I see that reflected by the prices!  I decided to get acquainted with what flowers would be available if I made buying ‘in season’ a priority. Not only will this approach save me money, but I like the idea of reflecting the seasons in the flowers I have in the house. Most flowers are season-specific although some, like Alstromeria (below), Gerbera Daisy, Anthurium, Aster, Carnation and Chrysanthemums are found throughout the year. If you are desperate for a specific flower at the wrong time of year where you live, chances are it will be blooming and thus available (for a price) in the opposite hemisphere, so don’t panic.
