Flower Seasonality and Availability

Flower Seasonality and Availability

As the seasons change, so do the varieties of flowers that are available at your local florist. And while there are some blooms that are available year round, others are only here for a short while. While we are always sad to see peony season end, it also makes us giddy with anticipation when May rolls around again the next year! Understanding the seasonality of different blooms can help you choose flowers that are both sustainable and cost-effective, as well as help you make informed decisions when it comes to ordering your own bouquets and arrangements.

The availability of fresh flowers is a perfect example of the cycle of seasons and the wonder of nature. Whether it's the daffodils of Spring, the dahlias of Summer, the chrysanthemums of Fall, or the hellebores of Winter, each season brings its own unique palette of colours, scents, and textures. By understanding the seasonality of flowers, we can appreciate the ephemeral nature of life and the importance of living in the moment. We can also support local farmers and florists who work hard to cultivate and showcase the best that our Manitoba summer has to offer. So next time you want to buy some flowers, consider asking your florist to use the best of the season.
