Welcome valued customers to our first weekly newsletter.
Each week we’ll let you know what’s in abundance, what’s limited and what you can look forward to.
With Spring almost to an end and summer knocking on our doorstep, Christmas is just around the corner.
The relentless hot weather has brought many and varied challenges. There’s an abundance of flower availability, probably the most volume we’ve seen for 8 months
Firstly, with the festive season approaching excellent supplies of Poinsettias, Holly, Green & Blue Spruce, white painted Corkwood, Pine Cones, Christmas trees both potted and cut, and of course the symbolic Christmas Lily.
A glimpse of some new flowers coming in with local Lissianthus volumes starting to build and our wonderful iconic waterlilies are in full swing. Queensland Brain Celosia in lots of reds, sought after for that Christmas touch and Dahlias from NSW have just begun.
Amaranthus has been well received although it is limited supply. Smoke Bush is starting to flower up and looking magnificent. Peonies are in full flush, great quality and excellent value.
Foliages- Camellia, Laurel and Magnolia have all but finished as the trees are going through the next period of growth. Most florists are finding comfort with Green and Copper Beech, Oak foliage, Rhodo Foliage, Peppercorn, Smoke Bush and Ivy Berry. There’s still ample supply of lush Viburnum both local and from NSW.
Gum foliages such as pulverulenta (Sticky Gum), Cinerea & Crenulata are a bit hit and miss and we suggest you substitute with green long leaf Euculyptus & Chestnut Foliage.
Hope you’ve enjoyed our first Mr Fresh News update. We’ll be back next week.
