Summer is here, and has brought with it plenty of excitement about the armfuls of summer blooms available at flower markets and florists across the country.
Summer offers so much choice – not only of bright, vibrant flowers, but some very attractive plant varieties too.
We’ve had so many gorgeous summer plants to choose from, like the striking sunflower, Peonies, Hydrangea, Campanulas…the list goes on.
