Platinum Jubilee flowers – Westcountry NURSERIES

At first of June the nation shall be celebrating Her
Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. I can consider no higher manner of
celebrating than with flowers.

We’re celebrating the Jubilee right here with an Open Day on the nursery on Friday, June tenth. Come and see us between 10am and three.30pm. The lupins shall be in full bloom and there shall be plenty of vegetation so that you can purchase.

Flower festivals

Up and down the nation there shall be flower festivals to
mark the Jubilee. There’s one close to right here and I’ve the porch to brighten.

Good color scheme

I’m fairly fortunate with the color
scheme. We have now been advised we are able to use any colors related to the Queen for
inspiration, I may go along with silver and purple to enhance the Platinum
Jubilee bunting I’ve purchased. Or, purple, white and blue would replicate the
nationwide flag. If I don’t fancy these I may select any of Her Majesty’s
beautiful vibrant outfits for inspiration.

I believe I’ll purpose for somewhat little bit of every little thing.

Lupinus Beefeater

Lupins are the very best

The perfect flowers for the pageant are undoubtedly lupins.  For purple I can select between Blacksmith,
and Shirley
. Silver is harder however I may all the time pop a Cashmere
within the combine.

Lupinus Blossom
Lupinus Polar Princess

Purple, white and blue is simple. Purple
and Tequila
for the reds. Snow
and Polar
for the whites. And Persian
for the blues.

I appreciated the brilliant yellow outfit the Queen was sporting for
her journey on the Elizabeth Line. Desert
is the proper match.

Deschampsia Golden Dew

Want different flowers too

Nevertheless tempting I can’t simply use lupins.
As an alternative I shall be turning to Delphinium
and Dierama
for some white. Geranium
for purple. Deschampsia
caespitosa Golden Dew
for silver.

divaricata Chattahoochee
has vibrant blue flowers with a purple centre. Imperata
cylindrica Rubra
will present extra purple and provides some construction to my
show. There shall be blue from the salvias,
particularly Cacaliifolia
and Black
and Blue

Dierama Blackbird

Hopefully with all these at my disposal I will
make an acceptable association.

Thanks for the rain

The latest rain has been welcome. Every little thing was getting
very thirsty. The rain has inspired many vegetation to bloom together with aquilegia
and geums.

Spring Magic
is a mass of delicate pink blooms. Geum
is a riot of golden yellow flowers.

Geum Completely Tangerine

Gardening ideas
– Reduce the foliage of flowering bulbs if it has utterly died down.  Plant summer season bedding, together with astrantia
for vibrant shows by to autumn. 
Hold tender seedlings and younger vegetation watered. Hold a watch out for
