Market Report 14th October

October 14 2010

Its officially spring at Stems Flower Market.  The shop is filled with beautiful new varieties that are stunning.

It is definitely waratah season, with our range of sizes between 30cm and 1.5 metres in height.  They are truly brilliant, and well worth coming in to have a look at.  The ‘Lily of the valley’ and the Lilac, are favourites this time of year for those that love the sweet aromas in the home.  The buy of todays market were the Cymbidium orchid stems.  Up to 15 flower heads per stem, and the colour range is phenominal.

The last of the daffodils are in store today, with our supplier ‘Rosslyn Farms’ finishing up in the market today until July of next year.  If daffodils are your thing, they will be in short supply from now on…

There is still some great value in the oriental lillies, with both the medium and the large lillies opening brilliantly.  The little burst of warm weather has also seen some more locally grown roses enter the market, which reduces the industries reliance on the imported roses.

From the farm, the ranunculi continue to be very popular.  We have planted our statice plants along with some new varieties of alstromeria, which will be exciting early next year… The carnations have enjoyed the spring weather, as have the Green trick, which have bulked up in size and are in high demand for functions including this weeks caulfield cup… photos to follow on our newsletter.

Speaking of which, congratulations to this months winner of the Oriental lily bouquet, which is drawn monthly.  Anyone can enter by requesting to receive our ’email newsletter’ – so sign up today for a chance to win this months draw…
