With such beautiful weather and very little chance of rain, summer is the most popular time of year to get married.  If you are considering getting married in the months of June, July or August the following are some of my favorite local flowers available. All these flowers can be grown here in Victoria in your garden if you have a green thumb. But for us florists when larger quantities are needed for weddings many of these flowers can be ordered from the main land where there are some fabulous greenhouse growers.
JUNE –  delphiniums, peonies and lady’s mantle
JULY – sweet peas, peony, dusty miller
AUGUST – dahlias and roses

Alstroemeria – available 12 months of the year in a variety of colors

How important is “supporting local growers” in your wedding planning?
