5 tips to care for palms
Posted by: webedit on May 6, 2017 | Comments Off on 5 tips to care for palms

The range of specialty palms is limited.  It’s notable that no varieties are offered – all palms are botanical species.

Care tips for palm

  1. All palms are ‘easy care’. However, every specialty palm requires a different approach, because the plants all grow differently, have different leaf thicknesses and structures, and originate from different regions. In order to be able to advise consumers correctly, look at the individual palm.
  2. The plant may require more or less water, depending on position, the size of the plant and the thickness of the leaves. For thicker and more rugged leaves (Cycas and Rhapis) give less water. For thinner and more fragile leaves (Livistona and Caryota) give more water. The latter two also like being sprayed from time to time, particularly in the winter months when the heating indoors is on, causing the air to be particularly dry. A light rain shower is also great for refreshing these plants in the spring and summer months. It also prevents browning of the leaf edges and tips.
  3. Plant food once every four weeks is enough to keep specialty palms healthy and beautiful for a long time.
  4. Palms generally prefer a moderately light or light position, but not in bright sunlight. The Cycas is the exception: in the summer months it can stand outside in the sun after it has slowly acclimatised to it. When Cycas produces a new leaf rosette, it will shed the old, lowest rosette. It’s best if new leaves are produced in a light, sunny spot outdoors, so that the leaves are nice and compact. The leaves will be more stretched in the living room.
  5. In the cold months, wrap up specialty palms carefully for transporting home: as tropical beauties they cannot cope with the cold.

The carnation
Posted by: webedit on April 26, 2017 | Comments Off on The carnation

The carnation’s origin anjer2017-01

The original birthplace of the carnation is on the coast of the Mediterranean. The popularity of the flower goes back many centuries; for example, the Romans were already making wreathes and fresh eau de toilette out of carnations. The flower can also be regularly seen in religious paintings as a symbol of the Virgin Mary and to symbolise the suffering of Christ. The Latin name for the carnation is Dianthus, derived from Dios (God) and anthos (flower). That means that the carnation is a divine flower!

Colours and shapes of the carnation
Green, deep purple, dark red, fluorescent yellow, champagne, soft orange, salmon pink, white or combinations of colours: the carnation offers a magnificent array of colours. But that’s certainly not the only remarkable thing about this flower. For example, are you familiar with the various shapes? There are carnation with a single flower, and there are spray carnations. The carnation also has eye-catching petals, with rounded, serrated or fringed edges. So it’s no surprise that the carnation is a fantastic lead performer or support act in any vase.

Caring for carnations 

  • Make sure the vase is clean.
  • Fill the vase with water and cut flower food.
  • Remove the bottom leaves.
  • Trim the stems.
  • Keep carnations away from direct sunlight and ripening fruit.

Carnation symbolism
The carnation symbolises passion, longing and romance. That’s why Renaissance painters in the 15th and 16th century chose this flower to appear in their engagement scenes. And nothing has changed in that regard: the carnation is still an appropriate gift for demonstrating passionate love. Or to revive the passion in your relationship. If that should be necessary…
