January flowers for a lucky UK loved one

During the cold month of January, many people don’t think that flowers could bloom under such conditions. The UK is full of wonderful surprises, however, and there are a few fantastic options for anyone looking to send fresh flowers during this month. When browsing through the various bouquets at your favourite UK florist, you’re bound to notice how abundant they are despite the weather. Even if some of the flowers aren’t in season, there are a number of flowers that are so popular that florists prefer to keep them in stock permanently.

When choosing the perfect flowers to send at this time of year, keep in mind that some of these blooms work well as focal flowers and others are best used as mass or filler flowers. Some of the most popular flowers that you will find at your local florist during this time of year include:
