Christmas 2012

We have been very busy this year in the lead up to Christmas. With Interflora releasing a new selection guide we have had many images of beautiful flowers to go through to try to select which arrangements we would like to add to our online offering. You can see a few of them here along with our own designs. Also just in time for Christmas we have added the new range of Interflora Gift Hampers to our online selection. But of course, flowers are the perfect choice for someone that has everything this Christmas.

For delivery in the Rockingham area (Mandurah to Fremantle) all arrangements, bouquets, gift baskets and other gift items can be ordered online, however if you see something on our website that you would like be delivered outside this area you will need to call us (08) 9527 5562 to place your order as not all items are available to send through Interflora and the Interflora service fee will need to be added to the price in addition to the standard delivery fee.

Brides Bouquet

Here is a recent bouquet we created for a wedding on HMAS Stirling, Garden Island near Rockingham.

Trailing Style Wedding Bouquet with Oriental Lilliums, Roses and Ivy

It is a simple and elegant bouquet with Oriental Lilliums, Roses and Ivy. As the bride was overseas until a few days before the wedding, the flowers were organised by consulting with the groom and the bride sending pictures via email – this way we managed to create the very look the bride wanted and she was very happy with her flowers. The ivy, along with the pale cream roses, creates a nostalgic, romantic look while the oriental lilliums add some showiness.

Indoor Plants

Indoor plants are a great way to brighten up a living area, however many people have trouble keeping indoor plants alive. The biggest cause is usually a poor selection of plants to begin with.

Most plants need sunlight to grow well; few are suited to the low light conditions indoors, particularly flowering plants. Some of the better choices of flowering indoor plants are Spathiphyllum (Madonna Lily or Peace Lily) and Phalaenopsis Orchids (Moth Orchid, pictured below). These plants do well in a bright room, as close to a window as possible so that they can receive as much sunlight as they can. The Spathaphyllum do not like to dry out between watering – depending on local conditions they will typically need watering every other day.

Twice a week the  Phalaenopsis Orchids need to be given a lot of water and then be allowed to drain. The flowers on the Phalaenopsis Orchid will last for months on the plant, when they have finished blooming just cut off the flowering stem above the first node to encourage more flowering spikes.

Fishbowl Terrarium

Terrariums are another popular, low maintenance option for indoor plants. Keep the terrarium near a window so that they can get get plenty of late and give them a good spray from a water bottle every other day. Just be sure to not over-water.

Hanging Basket Florist have beautiful plants, both for indoors and out, available for delivery in the Rockingham, Kwinana, Warnbro area.
