The summer flowers are here! This is the most glorious time of year for flowers. The season has started with┬ápeonies in coral, white and pink. We also have sweet peas, lupins, cornflowers, lavender and sunflowers. Our current favourite is the large peony, Coral Charm; starting as a tight ball, the flower opens into a huge coral peony which gradually turns bronze-pink over the next few days. We also are keen on English Hesperis – a tall frond of delicate white or purple flowers which is part of the brassica family.

We also have started to stock some intriguing succulents and some new houseplants such as the sweet and exotic-looking Chinese Money plant.

One of the first (and best) summer events in London is the Chelsea Flower Show. As well as the garden competition, growers introduce completely new varieties of plants which are judged by the Flower Show judges. Our favourite from the shortlist for Plant of the Year was the new peony, All that Jazz , which has creamy-apricot petals flecked with dark red and a dark red centre. The winner was a sedum shrub, Atlantis Nonsitnal, which has yellow variegated leaves and small flowers in the summer.
