The green, yellow, white colour scheme is a very fresh, summery look.
A stem or two in a vase can really add a touch of elegance to your home. Cymbidium Orchids are also one of the longest lasting cut flowers available. While their price may seem extravagant – around $30 for one stem! – they can last up to three weeks, sometimes even longer.
Hydrangea are a warm weather loving flower.
Potted Hydrangea Care Tips: Plant these where they will get full morning sun – afternoon sun will be too hot, but not enough sun and they won’t flower. Hydrangea love plenty of water, particularly in hot weather. Cut off the spent flowers to encourage new blooms.
With Spring flowers like Tulips coming to an end we can look forward to warmer weather flowers like these fantastic Gladioli which have just come into season.
These gladioli are grown in the Swan Valley and are up to one metre tall. We buy WA grown whenever possible.
Each week we do two large vase arrangements of Oriental Lilliums and tropical foliage for Pandora jewellers here in Rockingham, however this week they are having a special promotion and wanted to add a little puple to their usual Pandora look. I created the above Orchid Vases for them – Purple Dendrobium Orchids and Bamboo, semi-submerged in a glass vase with glass marbles. I love the look so much I am adding the design to our website, I think it would make a great little gift to sit on someones office desk.
We also did individual wired Orchid blooms to match, which the girls wore in their hair. I would love to see ladies wearing flowers in their hair more often, I think it would look great on the girls going to their school ball with flowers in their hair to match their wrist sprays and corsages.
Last Sunday the Rockingham Salvation Army held a banquet to thank those in the community that have helped them. Hanging Basket Florist were pleased to be invited and to receive a Certificate of Appreciation. For many years we have been providing flowers for their chapel every Sunday, at the end of the service a deserving member of the congregation are given the flowers to take home.
It was a great day to meet others from the Rockingham community that support this wonderful group and their good work.
