While spring and summer are undeniably the two most popular seasons of the year, autumn comes a close second. With the beautiful changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and migration of animals to warmer climates, it’s usually a time when we also plan our short getaways too!
However, if you’re looking forward to celebrating autumn this year, Mordialloc Florist is here to suggest some beautiful blooms to brighten up your garden. From March to May, autumn flower planting is a popular activity for gardeners in Melbourne. When the temperature begins to cool down, it becomes an ideal time to plant flowers that thrive in cooler conditions. Add colour to your garden with the following autumn flower suggestions.
