Shower Mum with flowers 💐

Hi everyone,

With Mother’s Day coming up, florists will be going insane with work, but grow very happy with incoming business. Over 20 years ago, I was one of those plant people myself. I worked one of my first real jobs in a florist and despite never up-keeping a backyard garden at home, I actually know a lot about flowers. So today just for fun, I wanted to recommend some flowers that are great to plant in the Spring weather, along with offering some beginner gardening advice. Flowers that stay in a vase are great, but why not help Mum grow a garden, or plant a flower with her, for her, or in her name or memory.

Best gardening advice I can give :

  • Make sure you know what your plant needs. Sun ? Shade ? A little of both? Find the best space for the plant to be planted.
  • Make sure to give your plant soil that is from dug-into earth. Every plant does better with a a-combo of soil from the actual earth, and other soil.
  • Potted plants and gardened plants have different needs so make sure when you’re planting you follow the directions and get your flower advice from an expert.
  • Make sure you water your plants, but each flower requires different amounts of water to grow and stay healthy. Don’t under or overdo it.
  • Make sure once your flowers are growing to clip off dead flower bits. This helps your flowers grow and continue to come back for the next season.
  • When cutting flowers for a bouquet, I used to cut the stems at angles, 45degree ones to be exact. This helps your plant stay healthier and have a better water intake

My fave Flowers that bloom best in spring;

  • Marigolds
  • Black eyed Susan’s
  • Lantanas
  • Aster
  • Hibiscus
  • Sunflowers
  • Cosmos
  • Moon flower
  • Morning glories
  • My favorite flower : Lillie’s

So pull out the gardening gloves and get your watering can ready! If I could do it so can you.

I wish for you all to bloom continuously with good intentions and selflessness. We must grow together not apart so make sure you’re intentions/ love are known by those you care for.

Much love,

Belle ❤️
