HISTORY BEHIND THE FOUR LEAF CLOVER The charm of the four leaf clover started as far back as the middle ages. The first literary reference to suggest their good fortune was back in 1620, by Sir. John Melton. Celtic priests used to carry shamrocks in their pockets to ward off evil spirits, and children believed they would bring magic and luck.

Tulips have finally arrived in Montreal and they are taking over the store! Cut, planted or in our wonderful crates the season has finally arrived and we can’t be happier. Cut tulips are the first to arrive at the store in early January and our planted ones should be arriving by the end of month.

As a new year approaches most of us feel the need to make changes in our lives, of course for the better. Those choices could be to get fit, stop eating sugar, stop drinking alcohol, do some charity work or just become a better human being.

[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.
