Gift a potted flower plant!

By | 20 May 2018

Most of us usually gift flowers to our loved ones on special occasions. Flowers show people that you love and care about them, but the fact is, they cannot last as long as you may want them to. The next time you want to buy yourself or someone flowers that last longer, pick up a potted plant instead. A flowering plant not only signifies beauty and brings a smile on the face of your loved one but is also a lifetime remembrance of your love.

However, when buying or sending a plant, it is important that you choose your plant carefully. Apart from being beautiful, pick something that is easy to care for.

 

Gerbera

These bright and cheerful daisy- like flowers can brighten the mood of any person or place. Perfect for all occasions, this plant is sure to make your day special. The Gerbera thrives when it is placed in full sun and planted in sandy soil. A little compost added at the time of planting will encourage flower growth.
