With a mix of shadow and light, colour and whimsy, the blooms we’ve got for you here will strike just the right level of enchantment. And though our physical bods aren’t going anywhere too far for the minute, you can always let your mind run right to the edges of your imagination.
So, ready to whip out your imaginary wand and spellbind yourself with this box of bewitching botanicals?

This week we’re taking you on a magical journey, with dark and dramatic Magnolia, spellbinding Sim carnations, fairy cake coloured Stock, powdery snow sprinkled Dusty Miller and hypnotically fragrant Trailing Jasmine.
