Peony fans, your time starts now!

People ask us all year, when are peonies in season? The answer is November.

You will find them onto either side of November……….but if you want to be sure, this is the time.

When you see such spectacular blooms as these coral peonies you can understand why they are so eagerly awaited each year.

We have them in stock right now.

Spring Roses


Our bride this weekend was the lucky recipient of the first picking of David Austin roses for the season.



These fragrant, wonderfully old fashioned roses are grown outdoors and are dependent on the seasons .


Together with snowball viburnum and silver suede the effect is soft and pretty………..just like a Spring Bride.


Tying The Knot

Pagan leis were created for a wedding ceremony held in the Victorian bush.

Steel blue sea holly, scarlet kangaroo paw, leather fern, tetragona and berzillia were wired together using traditional techniques.

Vine and rope were woven and knotted alongside, with a hook fashioned from wire and a loop of rope for fastening.

The throwaway tradition is often the most telling of wedding activities-
this time round it was expected to resemble more of a rugby scrum!


These soft and sweet posies made the perfect centre pieces for an engagement lunch on Saturday.

Cottage roses, rice flower  and silver suede are all in season right now.

We also sell these adorable tiny fishbowl vases.

Saturday Market

Saturday market is always a big one and in spring there is an incredible array of flowers on offer………

The first of the peonies have arrived, along with lilac, snowball and foxglove……

Spring natives like waratah, boronia and kangaroo paw are at their dramatic best……

And  don’t forget the orchids,  from phalaenopsis to dancing ladies to cymbidium we’ve got them coming out of our……vases.

Welcome to our new blog!

Spring is in full flight  at Tribal Rose……..The Spring racing season has begun and that means Lily of the Valley is here!

This pretty, sweetly fragranced delight has a heartbreakingly short season so get it while you can……….Otherwise you’ll have to wait a  whole year for another chance.
