Hello I am trying to find out the popular flowers through the decades e.g. When I was a child my father grew roses and tulips ! Can anyone help with popular flowers through the decades? Thanks.
In the 60s my dad showed chrysanthemums, I remember him curling the petals out with the end of a comb!
Thanks ,that's the fifties and sixties covered between us .looking to cover between 1900- 2000.Love the comb tip.
1930s -mock orange was the only flower available for my mother's wedding.
In the 80's my Mum was very keen on ageratum, allysum and bedding salvias .....or swathes of busy-lizzies. Looked lovely
RB it was white alyssum not allium. Know what you mean though, everyone's garden looked the same. My Dad also grew a lot of nemesia and stocks.
Oh and don't forget all that pampas grass in the 70's
Nice one yviestevie with the pampas grass! Yuk! Every front garden had one slap bang in the middle!
Oh and what about the Peace rose! Everyone had that too!
I have a Peace rose.
Don't get me wrong Pansy, it is a beauty the peace rose but not the pampas! X
