Spring is in the air!

Despite the sudden freezing temperatures and the snow that has caused chaos in parts of the UK, Spring is in the air, and this season we have lots of flowers that are perfect for the upcoming annual spring occasions. First up…

Valentines Day is soon to reach us and usually it’s Roses that are given as the true symbol of love – but these days they are so expensive and despite new strains being bred they still don’t last well as a cut flower. Carnations although not the first choice for people (which is a shame!) are an ideal value alternative. The scarlet red carnation makes a striking colour and given as a gift of love would have the same effect as a rose surely? But why buy Carnations? Well they cost half the price of roses and last three times as long! It’s a win, win situation and what better way to show someone you love them, than with a longer lasting gift? Order online HERE

Valentines Day is hotly followed by another one of the most important days of the year – Mothers Day, the one day of the year we can express how much our Mum means to us and this year we have a new floral bouquet to tempt you with “Spring Cheer” is a perfect blend of fresh yellow blooms complimented with other yellow shades and we have an abundance of colours to choose from, from our beautiful yellow ground with pink picotee to a delicate creamy yellow, to a bright sun yellow and finished off with a dreamy apricot gold colour – what is not to like? It brings all the warmth of a sunny day wrapped in a large hug of love to all who receive it.

Our NEW floral bouquet, “Spring Cheer

Did you know: Mother’s Day has long been associated with carnations. In fact, the association between Mother’s Day and carnations goes back a very long way. As per a Christian legend, the carnation was the plant which sprung up when Jesus Christ’s mother – Mary shed tears of distress, seeing her son enduring sufferings. Today there are many flowers to choose from, but the humble carnation will always be our favourite!

Mothers Day is quickly followed by Easter with it’s long bank holiday weekend a great time to visit family and friends so why not send your thanks or best wishes by sending them a beautiful bouquet, we’ve many to choose from, our best selling bunch is the Fresh Fancy and it is clear to see why, the intricate patterns and colours makes this a real talking point to all who receive it. Another top pick is the Fantasy bouquet, the purple hues also make this a good one for Fathers Day and we can’t forget him!!

So whatever the occasion, think Allwoods flowers.
