‘Tis the season for fiery blooms with Freddie’s Flowers

A working day is always brightened up by a delivery of a huge box of flowers, and I was lucky enough to receive such a treat last week courtesy of Freddie’s Flowers.

Freddie’s Flowers is a flower subscription service which is quite unlike ones I have tried before. The box, as I mentioned, was huge, and filled with the most beautiful blooms that perfectly matched the season – LA Lily ‘original love’ – lilies that are ‘red yet pink yet peach’ along with carmanthus ‘safflower’ – bright orange fluffy flowers, mixed with soft ruscus foliage and red fluffy anigozanthis ‘Kangaroo Paw’ to add to the autumnal look. Freddie says on his blog the the carmanthus ‘safflower’ is like a hybrid of a pumpkin and a little firework and with it being halloween and bonfire night season it’s a perfect autumn arrangement.

The flowers were so fresh, the lilies were still closed as you can see. What I loved about this box is that it arrived with a card explaining which flowers were included, along with tips for arranging them – even which vase is best to use. For example, I’ve learned that the carthamus ‘safflower’ is known for being one of humanity’s oldest crops, with mention of them in garlands used in the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tuntankhamun, and that the Anigozanthus ‘Kangaroo Paw’ is the floral emblem of Western Australia.

The box also comes with two sachets of liquid flower food and the advice to change the water and the food after three days to keep the blooms fresh for longer.

It didn’t take the lilies long to open, and they really are the most beautiful shade of red.

Freddie’s Flowers is run by Freddie Garland, who says that it is

My mission is to bring zen-like joy to homes across the country by delivering gloriously fresh flowers in stunning combinations. Ever since I’ve been knee high to a peony I’ve believed that flowers are good for the soul.

I’m definitely inclined to agree!

It’s always difficult to tell what flowers received by post will be like, and I’ve had some disappointing flower boxes before, but this one certainly didn’t disappoint, and is still brightening up my living room after a week.

    Beautiful flowers! I love the beautiful shade of red in those lilies! I would love to receive flower bouquets, but I would rather get them in pots so that they can still continue to bloom.

    The flowers and arrangement look so exotic. My wife would dearly love them. kinda reminds me of Japanese style too!
