Market Specials Saturday 24th September 2011September 24 2011
It’s a true spring paradise this week at Stems. We have a full range of seasonal favourites such as Rannucs, Poppies, Fresias, Hyacinths and Daffs. An arm full of these bunches makes it feel like your in the flower markets of France.
The Warratah season is starting to hot up and there has been some nice stock coming thru. We got a handle full of 2mtr tall shady lady reds in this week. Yes 2mts tall. Their height is an exception and is a result of the good summer rains we received in late 10 and early 11. We are working the phone hard to the grower to see if we can get some more this week. So if you see them don’t miss out, they are sensational.
On the native front we have a large range available. Plenty of wax flower, protea pink ice, kings, thryptomene from Ron at the Grampiens flower farm and lots of leucs.
The spring conditions have made Roses a better option. Cold house grown roses from Hyland Hill roses started this week. The vase lufe of roses from these guys can’t be beaten and are great value for money.
At the shop we have had an extra busy week with Pam and Tyuen preparing for the Floral Gift at the Royal Melbourne Show as part of the Flowers Victoria exhibition. They have created some stylistic masterpieces in a ceramic container supplied by Apack and are competing against other florists from around Victoria. Good luck girls where hoping a Melbourne show sash is coming our way.
