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 in Canberra.

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, roses......devine!

Till next time, love
