There’s arguably no better time to send flowers than at springtime – both thanks to the wide choice of available flowers and the great scent that comes with them. Bulb flowers such as Narcissus hybrids, daffodils, tulips, hyacinth and Muscari (grape hyacinth) are in season – many of these have a delightful scent. Indeed, a large number of spring-flowering plants are scented, including Chamaelaucium (wax flower), lily of the valley (Convallaria), Genista (florists' broom), and lilac.
This is also the season for blossom – cherry blossom (Prunus) and Viburnum opulus (snowball tree) being two of the prettiest.A spring in our stepSpring is the season of the year florists really look forward to.

Back in the seventeenth century, tulips, the third bestselling spring flower today, sold for ten times the annual income of a skilled craftsman in Europe. The demand for the flower was so strong that many Europeans sold their fortunes for the bulbs. This historical event is known as Tulipomania.
