Featured flower: Alliums

This blog’s featured flowers are the alliums. It’s hard to believe they are from the onion genus, their appearance is stunning! Alliums can flower from spring until around September, depending on the allium species. And here they are, lining the paths at Buscot Park near Faringdon in Oxfordshire.

Buscot Park is a beautiful National Trust property with a country house built in the 1780s. It’s right on our doorstep here in North Wiltshire and well worth a visit.

Meanwhile, our installations this month were predominantly of English flowers, an abundance of beautiful fragrant blooms.

Inspired by the Chelsea Flower Show, itself unbelievable, as always! If you haven’t seen The Perfumer’s Garden In France by designer James Basson, check it out . You can smell it! Or bring the beautiful scent indoors with L’Occitane fragrance.
