April - Jamison Flowers opens its Flower School!
We are so excited to be opening up the shop to welcome our
first batch of budding florists!
Can you believe April is here already? The year is flying by in a blur of
beautiful flowers! The cooler weather will see the return of some of our
favourites, like stock, ranunculus, anemones and poppies. Autumn colours
are wowing us, oranges, reds, browns, it really is a beautiful time of year
Our most exciting development this month is our much
anticipated Flower School. Lots of our fabulous customers have been asking
us about flower courses so we thought it was about time to give it a go!
And we've been so thrilled with the response! Our first two courses in
April and May have already sold out, and our next two courses are filling
up fast. What have our students got to look forward to? The first part of
the course will focus on flower care and working with vases. We'll make
some beautiful bunches and table arrangements and teach them how to make
the most of colour and texture. Our gardening guru Troy is also coming
along to talk about getting the best out of the back yard. The second part
of the course will focus on working with floral foam. Our budding florists
will also be taking home a starter kit with all the special tools they'll
need to practice their new skills! We want it to be lots of fun and yes,
we'll reveal some of our best tips and tricks....but only if they promise
not to tell!
In anticipation of Flower School and Mother's Day we also thought it was
important to do a bit of shopping.....great to have an excuse or two! We
logged on and did some serious online shopping for new ceramic and metal
containers. All of them have arrived at Jamison and they are fantastic, we
have olive green watering cans and buckets, beautiful white vintage pots,
and plenty of other gorgeous ceramics perfect for home! Make sure you pop
in soon and let us know what you think!
We're going to be so busy over the next few weeks, but we love it! Next
month the focus will be on Mother's Day, we'll let you know about all the
great flower arrangements you can order to let your Mum know how special
she is. Think tin cans, African violets, vintage seed packets,
Till next time, love
