How exciting! Christmas is almost here. We’ll try to post some happy things that we’re doing with flowers for the occasion this week, but just in case we get busy and forget, here’s a tropically-bright getting-Christmassy arrangement we did last week…

This one has in it Birds of Paradise, red Gerberas, Celosia, Anthurium, ginger beehive, oriental lilies, protea, as well as various lush leaves, small native flowers and bark.

Finally a picture to show you the happy Caladiums we have at the moment…

We are excited as just today our new greeting card range, designed exclusively for us by LittleJojo, has arrived! Yay!
Our selection includes photos of nature, whimsical illustrations, as well as some hidden Gold Coast spots.
Hope you like them as much as we do…

Well, the bromeliads are now in, and we have to say it again, Oh My! and how Christmassy!
Did someone say Christmas! We’ll all be humming carols now.

What else is in? You ask. Well, there’s moss green and burgundy embossed paper, they tell me it’s acid free so all you scrap-booking craftsters out there we stock it! Yay! just ask instore, it’s $2 for a 50×70 sheet. Super!

And, that’s not all, we have some other plants: a beautiful white Desert Rose, variegated Spathphillium, and some Caladiums (also very Christmassy).

Happy December everyone!

One flower that gets requested for special occasions during the year is the peony. Most of the time it is not available, but PEONIES are now in season! They are one of our favorites for sure. Order in advance if you would like them, as colours come and go, and also, they come into the store as tight buds and take several days to open up.
Here’s one just blooming that we had in store last week.

They are beautiful and easy to look after, and we will have more arriving in store soon!

Here at Adam’s Garden we love living plants as well, particularly hardy ones that can deal with the Australian climate and also don’t require too much care. We should have new stock of bromeliads arriving soon, also in store at the moment we have these cute little succulents in wooden planters.

October is just about to finish, which is so sad, we love October! So many beautiful things that only flower around this time of year, particularly the Waratah. It is such a distinctive flower, and would you know it, it’s even the floral emblem of New South Wales. We love it because of it’s bold structural form and vibrant red colour, although it does also come in white which is really special as well.

This week has seen a lot of cool new things come into the shop, notably some navy blue embossed paper *sigh* we are so enraptured with it, with white lilies it’s just sublime and reminiscent of the sea and all things nautical, which is a strange thing for floral design I must admit, but nevertheless we love it.

Also in are 15cm fishbowl vases, they are super cute.

Here is an example with Singapore orchids and doda vine:
