A Guide to Seasonal Flowers: Which Flowers Are in Season?

It is no secret that when choosing flowers, one should select the ones that are in season. In season blooms are the best choice of flowers for your bouquet for a number of reasons. Firstly, they are most fresh, meaning that they will look the best. Secondly, they are the most affordable choice of flowers. Thirdly, when looking for seasonal flowers in florists, you will notice that they are easiest to come across, making them also a convenient choice.

To help you choose the best flowers for your bouquet, we have created a guide of which flowers grow at each time of the year. You will notice that some flowers are in season for more than just one month. Also, please note that this list should simply be treated as a guide to choosing seasonal flowers, and is not comprehensive.


Spring is the month of flowers! Leaves are starting to appear on trees again and flowers are beginning to blossom. This is one of the main reasons why Spring is one of the most popular times of year for weddings!
