Hello, fellow flower lovers!
With the arrival of June, we're welcoming a vibrant array of blooms that are ready to add color and fragrance to our lives. As the days grow longer and warmer, gardens are bursting with life and we, the team at Fortin Gage Floral Design House & Boutique, are here to help you make the most of this blooming season! We've noticed a surge in inquiries about June flowers, so we've decided to dedicate this post to answering your most common questions.
1. What are the Best Flowers to Buy in June?
June is a fantastic month for flower enthusiasts, with a plethora of blooms at their prime. You'll find roses, peonies, hydrangeas, lilies, and daisies, among others, in full bloom. This abundance of choice makes June the perfect time to experiment with different floral arrangements, whether you're crafting a bouquet for a special event or simply adding a touch of nature's beauty to your home.
2. How to Make Flowers Last Longer?
To extend the life of your flowers, add water daily! You can change the water every two days and give the stems a fresh cut at an angle each time. Keep your bouquet away from direct sunlight and heat sources, as these can cause the flowers to wilt faster. And don't forget to use the flower food packet that comes with your fresh cut flowers - it can really make a difference!
3. Tips for Arranging Flowers From My Garden?
Arranging flowers is a personal and creative process, but a good starting point is to use your largest flowers as the focal points, then fill in with smaller blooms and foliage. Don't be afraid to experiment with height and asymmetry - the most captivating arrangements are often those that break the mold!
4. What is June's Birth Flower?
The rose, symbolizing love and appreciation, is traditionally associated with June. However, the lush peony, symbolizing prosperity and honor, is also a popular choice for this month. Both make thoughtful gifts for those celebrating birthdays or other special occasions in June.
We hope this post has provided some helpful insights into the world of June flowers.
