A Rose Is A Rose !

On Valentine’s Day, we’ve taken the habit of offering sweet or fragrant gifts to our loved ones, but do we ever stop to think of the origins of this tradition?

We love Tulips !

[Name of flower] Tulip [Latin name] Tulipa hydrida [Origin of flower] Originally found in southern Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and China. [Common uses- how they come for sale] As bulbs for your garden, potted plants, or the most popular here, cut flowers! [Colours and Varieties Available] Parrot tulips, double tulips in every colour except blue or black. [Fun Fact] Tulips are one of the only flowers that stretch in water. This phenomenon is called phototropism; they are trying to reach up towards light. Just re-cut stems to avoid that crazy look, or leave it if you like it! Many people really want that “droopy tulip” style.
