Seasonal Flower Guide

One of the things that makes our designs unique and special are the amazing flowers we get to use. Each week, I select a variety of flowers that will work well together to create different and interesting colour palettes while offering a range of flower size, shape and texture.

I work closely with small-scale flower growers in Southern Ontario to help curate a selection of specialty varieties not available to the mass flower market mostly available during our growing season from May-October. These flower farmers are operating on a smaller plots of land (sometimes just their backyard!) and grow outdoors in their fields or raised flower beds. They combat pests often without the use of harmful pesticides, and instead using beneficial insects or planting certain flower varieties that keep certain bugs at bay. Since they are relying on Mother Nature, the weather affects when things will bloom and varies week to week. This keeps things interesting for us as a designer's and for you as well since our fresh flower offerings changes weekly!

Using local flowers as much as possible is one small step we take to offer a more sustainable service for a better future. Check out some of our favourites below!
