About Spring Flowers

Spring brings with it a riot of colourful flowers, making it one of our favourite seasons. Here, we look at the most popular cut flowers for spring, including daffodils, peonies and tulips and provide some helpful hints and tips on how to make the best of them.


If you like large, showy flowers, look no further than peonies, which always look fabulous in vase arrangements because of their impressive blooms. They have a sweet smelling fragrance and come in a variety of beautiful shades, making them a popular choice for spring and summer brides.

Top Care Tip

Peonies are thirsty flowers so prefer to be placed directly in water as opposed to arranged in floral foam. For best results display your peonies in a vase and make sure the water is changed every 2-3 days.

Did you know?

The Chinese city of Louyang is so passionate about peonies that it holds a festival in the flower’s honour every April.


The tulip is one of the most popular cut flowers in spring, and a hand-tied bouquet of them looks wonderfully elegant. Their blooms thrive in the cool weather, so they are in plentiful supply for spring bouquets. They’ll last for just over a week in a vase, so it’s best to buy them when they’re in bud.

Top Care Tip

Tulips are phototrophic and will continue to move and grow towards sunlight even when cut. To minimise movement of your tulips try to display them in a spot which is lit equally from all sides

Did you know?

There are now over 3,000 different registered varieties of cultivated Tulips.


Narcissus is the proper name for the daffodil family. Like tulips, these flowers are a particular favourite in springtime because they’re so prevalent in gardens and have been immortalised in poetry by Wordsworth. Bright and cheerful, they’re perfect for giving as gifts on Mother’s Day and St David’s Day.

Top Care Tip

When cut Narcissus exude a sap which can be damaging to other flowers. To overcome this, cut the stems and stand your Narcissus in cold water for 24 hours before adding any other flower varieties.

Did you know?

The Isles of Scilly pay a rent to the Duchy of Cornwall of one daffodil a year for all its uninhabited islands.


Popular due to its sweet scent, the hyacinth can really give a feeling of spring to your home. It comes in a variety of colours, from white to a rich indigo which also makes it a popular choice for Spring weddings.


November - May

Top Care Tip

Hyacinths prefer shallow water so don’t fill your vase too full. Instead change the water every other day and mist the flowers occasionally to prolong vase life.

In the Victorian language of flowers, the Hyacinth flower symbolizes sport or play.


This showy flower is a sure sign that spring has arrived. There are some 300 species of iris, although only a few, such as the bearded iris or Dutch iris, are used as cut flowers.
