Autumn is Pod & Pip's favourite season. It's the most abundant time of year with the last of the crops being harvested and hedgerows laden with berries, pods and pips! There is also a discreet and slow change in flower varieties and colours becoming available, from the pastel summer pinks to the deeper, richer and often dusky autumnal colours. So if you are planning an event or wedding what flowers can you expect to be available in Autumn?
Acacia - also known as mimosa
Alstromeria - (available all year round)
Amaryllis - large flowers and stems with beautiful deep colours available
Aster - daisy like flowers
Astrantia - one of my favourite flowers
Calla Lilly - quite a striking flower
Carnation and Chrysanthemum - (available all year)
Dahia - come in a variety of colours and sizes and I think sell the beginning of autumn!

So there's lots of flowers to choose from and lots of colours to go with your wedding or event theme whether it's a an earthy natural countryside theme, rich jewel colours or bright oranges and reds
P.S Don't forget you can also forage the hedgerows for some more seasonal delights! I've used pheasant feathers and teasels for the autumnal arrangement in the photo above and selected deep rich colours for the flowers to give it an autumn countryside feel.
