Orchids will be big in spring 2014 for their dainty yet exotic appearance and vibrant pink colour. ‘Radiant orchid’ is a hit shade this year and has been deemed by many as the ‘colour of the year’ for interior design and fashion.

Orchids are more of a summer flower than a spring bloom but they can be sourced all year round whether fresh or artificial. They have a varied symbolism in popular culture ranging from rare beauty, artful splendour and luxurious opulence to strength, pure affection and mature charm.
