Note from Tash – Due to COVID related staff shortages affecting flower supply, this week you’ll find goldenrod (also known as solidaster) instead of yellow achillea in your boxes. Once in bloom the effect is similar and just as full of sunshine!

Resolution Revolution! – Pineapple Lily Arrangement

With Gum, Goldenrod and Zinnias

It’s 2022, and you got this. New year, new blooms, new focus. This year is going to be what YOU make of it. And prioritising creativity and self care is one of the most enriching things you can do for yourself!

You’re off to a delicious start, with this week’s box packed full of tropical, whimsical goodness. Summer fling, comin’ atcha.

Pineapple lilies take centre stage. These juicy, tropical blooms look great standing tall and proud (come to think of it, so do you). We love the rich colour they bring! And the fragrance – YES. Balance them out with branches of mint green gum. Sunny stalks of Goldenrod bring pops of colour and unusual texture all over.

Zinnias – how we love thee! They’re almost garish, but they hold it all together with layers of soft petals and the cutest colours. Tuck these in at the end to create a colourful focal point. Then – POW – nestle in your umbrella fern at the base for that final flourish.

Ready to get into it?
