Think of your favourite flower. Is it roses? B&J Deane specialises in growing these, from October to July – old-fashioned scented ones too. You can pair them prettily with the gypsophila and purple limonium they grow. Perhaps you swoon for fragrant sweet peas or stocks? You’re in luck. Anemones, ranunculus; silvery senecio? You can get those too. Or are you a fan of blue blooms? Deane can offer you delphinium (two kinds), campanula, cornflower, and mop-head hydrangea. If you prefer something brighter, there’s abundant dahlias in summer. No wonder some retail customers drive from the coast of Brisbane to the Lockyer Valley every week just to buy their flowers from this friendly family business. After all, with each crop grown in limited edition quantities, you’d hate to miss out.
