Inspiration for Autumn Flower arrangements

Now the grey days and darker nights of Autumn have arrived, boost your spirits by injecting colour with beautiful vibrant blooms, into your home.

Experiment with quirky colour palettes - try teaming up strong purples with vibrant orange see suggestions below 1. zingy lime with orange and yellow for a citrus burst 2.  or 3. cerise, plum, red burgundy and pink for a monochromatic coordinated feel.

Add height and structure with twigs, branches and arching foliage, and texture with fuzzy Anigozanthos, Sedum and berries. Incorporate fruit, vegetables, dried wheat and seed heads to celebrate harvest and add herbs and aromatics for fragrance.

See those darker days look brighter instantly by creating a rich tapestry of fruit and flowers. Explore hedgerows and wander around your garden for inspiration, not only for your plant material but for unusual containers too!
