- Winter is here!
up because this weather isn’t going to get any better, but we guarantee it’ll
always be bright and beautiful at Jamison Flowers!
After enjoying the
warmest May in almost ten years, the cold weather has arrived with a bang! Winter
is certainly here, and while it gives our gardens time to rest and recover,
it's not so great for those of us who love cut flowers! Unfortunately we
don't have as many flowers to choose from during the cold months, but our
commercial growers and their greenhouses will make sure we don't go without!
And of course there are always those lovely little surprises each week,
like bunches of bright yellow daffodils. They remind us that glorious
spring, our favourite season, will be here before we know it!

Lately we've received dozens of wonderful pink proteas from one of our
favourite customer's gardens. Inspiration
comes from lots of different places, whether it's a new container or vase, a
bunch of amazing greenery or even some great twisty sticks! We're also
inspired by other florists and we follow lots of other great shops on Facebook
and Instagram. Some of our favourites are Kate Hill who has a business
based in Prahan in Melbourne, Mr Cook a Sydney Florist based in Double Bay, and
Fionna Florals in California. They all do amazing weddings and lots of
fantastic events. Check out our Jamison Flowers Instagram page to see
what we're doing and learn all about the other great florists we keep an eye
June will be a sad
month for us at Jamison Flowers because we have to farewell a much loved staff
member. After working with us for 6 months, Jodi is leaving to go back to
America. It's a bittersweet goodbye, we're happy that she will be
returning to her family and friends but her Australian flower family will miss
her terribly. She has brought her unique and fabulous style to Jamison
and has taught us all some new tricks, and she will definitely not be
forgotten! At least we now have somewhere to stay if we make it to the US
Our Flower School is
continuing to go from strength to strength. We have released some new course
dates for beginners – the 3rd of July and the 24th of
July, and the 17th of July and the 7th of August. If
you’re interested make sure you contact the shop because they’ll fill up
fast! Many of the students who've attended
our first courses are interested in doing more classes with us, so we'll
consider offering some continuing classes next year. For the time being
our Flower School will only operate during the quieter winter months.
Spring signals the return of Canberra's wedding season, a very busy and
bustling time in the shop!
June will bring an
end to our 'Flowers for your birthday' competition. It's been such a fun
event for us, we love rewarding our fantastic supporters! Our May winner was Bernadette Froome who
received a gorgeous bunch of lilies. The lily symbolises elegance and
Well that's us for
another month. It's time to snuggle up under the doona with a hot drink
and a good book! Just make sure you've got a vase of something beautiful
on the bedside table and you'll be able to forget the freezing weather outside!
