What blooms are best suited to the winter months?
There is so much to appreciate in winter! Cymbidium orchids, tulips, poppies, phalaenopsis orchids, sweetpeas, arums and birds of paradise are all in season and particularly adaptable for winter. In the later parts of winter, look for daffodils and jonquils for a pop of colour!
Are there any flowers to avoid during winter?
Each season has its unique perk. Spring is when plants awaken and we get this beautiful spout of growth and colour, whereas summer is usually all about blooms outdoing one another. For winter, you won’t find many tropical flowers available – they don’t like the cold – and it is best to avoid flowers and plants like ginger and heliconia.
What is the best way to keep your blooms healthy indoors?
Sunny skies and cold nights make for perfect potting time when the soil temperature drops. Inside, it’s a much different story! If you have blooms in vases or potted plants, it’s best to move them out of the way of heated air conditioning and strong draughts. You should also avoid direct sunlight but make sure plants are placed in a room with lots of natural light! Make sure to change the water every few days.
What is the typical lifespan of a bouquet of flowers?
Anywhere between 5 – 14 days depending on the flowers. Some flowers like orchids and natives can last even longer, but make sure to change the water in your vase every few days to keep them fresh!
What should you be looking for in a florist to determine which blooms to purchase?
A bright clean environment is best with lots of variety available. Colour blocking looks great and makes it much easier to choose flowers. Check out the plants – they should be fresh, healthy and vibrant green. Vases and containers should be clean and sparkling!
You are all set to inject a burst of fresh, fragment and fabulous blooms to any room or office space this season – and, keep them healthy for weeks to come! Don’t forget to pick up the tips above to enter our competition live now for your chance to win 1 of 3 bouquets thanks to Pearsons Florist.
