A few of us here at BasketsGalore are having late holidays to the sun, or in Andrea's case to a damp, rather misty Spain. The shops are all getting in their warmer clothes, furry hats and gloves. It's an awful thought but it won't be long until Summer is definitely over and all our lovely, local summer fruits like strawberries and raspberries will be gone. So I thought I would compare our fruit & flower selections with the seasonal choices which are now available.
The best choice is now our stoned fruit selection. There is an abundance of variety in lovely plums and nectarines at the moment. We have just taken delivery of some wooden crates of Victoria Plums, from Kent. These are sweet and fruity and are a lovely new addition to our fruit baskets. The Nectarines are from France, Sunburst and Spain, Silver Delice. Our Blueberries, also local are called Chandler and are sweet and juicy. These are also proving to be a popular choice.
Our popular flowering plant gift baskets have seasonally changed from Chrysanthemums and Begonias into miniature Roses or colourful daisies. If this is with a Sympathy Basket we add a white plant automatically. All of these come gift-wrapped in their own flower box and decorated with a ribbon and bow in the appropriate colour.
