Good Morning, I am coming to

Good Morning,
I am coming to the UK from Australia in December for a few weeks (22/12-10/1/17) to visit my daughter who has lived in the UK for 10 years. I am planning on coming to the markets and was wondering what flowers will be available for the Xmas/NY period as I would love to make an arrangement as well as have fresh flowers for her home. I have come into floristry late in life- only finished my certificate here 2 years ago and unfortunately am unable to work in the industry (at 55 this is very difficult here), but alas my lifelong passion for flowers continues! Also, as I won't be able to bring my sundries and tools, can these be purchased at the markets? Any hints or information would be greatly appreciated!
