If you’re fancying an April wedding, there’s a variety of British grown Spring flowers to be enjoyed. Later in April there are more tulips, but there’s also a chance of anemones, and throughout the month there are fancy narcissi, forget me nots, wallflowers, and the last of the hyacinths.

Oh and a note on narcissi or daffodils – they’re not always bright yellow! There are gorgeous soft shades of cream, pale yellow, white, and white with pink trumpets. And most of them are scented too. I always make sure I grow a wide variety, and it’s become a bit of an addiction, a collection I add to every autumn. 

The blues come from muscari (grape hyacinths) and dainty forget-me-nots. Some early flowering perennials can provide a hint of peach, orange or purple too. 

If you’re fancying bright colours, there is nothing like a tulip – the range of colours available to grow is amazing!

It’s a glorious time to get married in terms of the flowers, though it’s important to be flexible as the weather can be somewhat unpredictable!! Best to think about a colour palette and then choose what looks best at the time from these colours.

If you’re hoping to book your wedding flowers from me, it’s a good idea to get in touch as early as you can, to make sure I’m growing colours that will suit you. I tend to order Spring bulbs in August, so as to get what I want. These include tulips and narcissi, so if you’re planning a Spring wedding next year, anytime between now and August is a good time to get in touch with your local flower farmer florist!
