I’m getting married in December and would really like to have lily of the valley and scented garden roses in my bouquet, is this possible?

Yes, lily of the valley like stephanotis are grown under glass all year round in Holland and the scented garden roses are grown in Kenya, there are two main growers we use, ‘David Austin’ and the ‘Real flower Company’-Some of the roses available are:-

  • ‘Blue moon’ which is lilac in colour and is lightly scented.
  • ‘Margaret Merrill’ is an ivory spray rose with a pink blush, it has a strong scent.
  • ‘Miranda’ has large blooms of rose pink coloured flowers and a fruity fragrance.

There are many others.

The scented roses mix perfectly with other cottage garden foliages and herbs, like Lavender, rosemary, fennel, mint and jasmine- rosemary and jasmine are available in December.

Garden roses may be more expensive than other roses as is lily of the valley (natural season is May).
