Flowers By Season

What blooms when on our Gympie flower farm

This page lists the the flowers by season, of which we grow on our flower farm, for our florist and "You Pick" events, in sub-tropical South East Queensland. Located in Gympie, we usually get frosts in winter, which knocks out most flowers.

Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter have different flowers available. Below, we list the ones we grow here on our Gympie flower farm. The third garden is the one we open for "You Cut" or "You Pick" events. These flowers are listed separately, so you can decide if they're right for your project and to give you an idea of what you have to choose from, at different times of year.
