So you might think that by October, as we’re into autumn, that flowers might be a bit scarce…..well, they’re definitely precious in October! The weather as always makes a huge difference as to the flowers. If we have no or light frosts, we can have the most amazing chrysanthemums…..see below! I’m always amazed by how many other flowers keep on going too. Also, there are dried flowers, as I spend the summer stashing them away for those autumn/winter weddings and special occasions….

Flowers during October may include:

Chrysanthemums, dahlias, evergreen foliage, dried flowers, blue thistle (eryngium), snapdragons (antirrhinums), alstroemeria, asters, scabious, clary sage, (Salvia Horminium), astrantia, calendula, rudbeckia, grasses, amaranthus.
