Rose's Shop Watch-June '14: Flowers
A great selection of flowers.
Tesco always has a really good selection of fresh flowers all year round at very reasonable prices. Last week I stopped to count the selection at my local store (which is quite a small branch) and there were lilies in white and pink; roses in 8 colours (pink; red; apricot; orange; yellow; white; cream; deep pink;) phlox in single colours and mixed bunches; pinks; peonies; rainbow tulips (still); huge bunches of sweet williams for £3; freesias in 4 colours; alstroemeria in 3 colours; irises; and chrysanthemums in lots of lovely shades of mauve.
Then there are mixed bunches. Now I normally prefer flowers to be as natural as possible - as if they had just been picked from the garden, or I go for single colours, so I tend not to consider the mixed bunches. However, on closer inspection, they tend to be quite elegant combinations of roses and lisianthus; roses and freesias; and chrysanthemums with roses and agapanthus. And they come wrapped in “handkerchief” tissue paper as if they have come from a florists. There is the odd lapse into rather luminous colours but these are few and far between.
Your house can be full of flowers every week.
Most flower bouquets from £3-£5
Most mixed flower bouquets £5-£10 (Finest bouquets £15)
