This Canada day long weekend many Canadians will be heading to the cottage. A cottage vacation is wonderful and flowers can help to welcome you and your guest to the cottage. A sample bouquet of flowers can and will help to brighten anyone’s day. I suggest using garden flowers like gerbera daises these casual flowers come in many colors and is easy to care for. If your cottage is uber chic use more suffocated flowers like hydrangeas and orchids for your floral display.

Sun flowers

The sunflower’s origin
The sunflower originates from North and South America. Native Americans ate the flower’s seeds with beans, sweetcorn and squashes,

The sunflower’s colours and shapes
We particularly know the sunflower as a yellow beauty, but there are also orange, brown, cream and dark red versions. There’s also plenty of variety when it comes to shape: there are sunflowers with large or small flowers, with a single row of petals or with multiple rings of petals.

Caring for sunflowers
•    Trim the stems diagonally.
•    Remove surplus leaves from the stems.
•    Place the flowers in a clean vase – preferably glass – with tap water at room temperature.
•    Add some cut flower food.
•    Regularly top the vase up, because sunflowers are thirsty.
•    Place the vase in a cool spot away from the fruit bowl and not in full sun.
•    Allow for the weight of the sunflowers, so choose a sturdy vase.

Sunflower symbolism
The sunflower often symbolises the sun and love. In Greek mythology the nymph Clytia fell head over heels in love with the sun god Apollo. Although Clytia was very beautiful, Apollo did not reciprocate her love. As a result Clytia died of a broken heart, was transformed into a sunflower and therefore constantly follows the sun in order to be able to see her sun god.

Vase arrangement maintenance
Posted by: webedit on June 21, 2017 | Comments Off on Vase arrangement maintenance

Many people don’r realize that in order for flowers to last a long time that they need to have proper vase maintenance. Before putting fresh flowers in a vase make sure that the vase is clean. Putting flowers in a dirty vase will shorten the vase life by 2 to three days.

Step 1 Always wash your vase with bleach and wince the vase well before putting your bouquet in the vase. If access bleach is left in the vase the flowers will die fast.

Step 2. Fill the vase with water and add flower food.

Step 3.Place the flowers in the vase.

Step 4. Wince the vase every 2 to 3 days.
