Pretty in Pink July flowers

We’re 3 years on now from when a lot of the photos were taken for the book. I wanted to know how relevant it was to what i’m growing now. So last week I toured the field spotting everything that was available that went with the July colour layouts from the book. This is what’s available in the middle of July for Pretty in pink July flower themes.

Hellebore foetidus

Hellebore foetidus

Hellebore Foetidus is a flower that I'd come across lots in client gardens. It was hardy, didn't mind some shade, flowered in the middle of winter (it's often flowering in my garden on the 1st of January or before, and continues until March) and is a lovely green colour that goes with just about everything.

The April Photo shoot

The April Photo shoot

Each month last year we got a talented florist, and gave them a couple of buckets of flowers for them to make seasonal displays with. With little direction and even less warning of what flowers they were likely to be getting, the bouquets and arrangements reflected their style and ability to work with seasonal flowers.
