Terrific Tulips

Tulips are here 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.

THE YEAR OF HAPPINESS

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.

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.

Carthamus

Considered a pasture weed in Australia, this flower is a somewhat unconventional choice in a bouquet.

Food For Thought

Its summertime and our fridges are bursting with color! One of our favourite flowers this time of year is celosia. Bright, vibrant, velvety...what’s not to love! Celosia looks especially beautiful when arranged tightly, showing off their colourful, curving shape and creating dynamic contrast with more traditional blooms. You may have seen these unique flowers in the store, or received them in arrangements, but here are 10 fun facts about celosia you may not have know before!
