What better way to brighten these dark winter days than spring flowers. The commercial cut flower industry is always ahead of the seasons. So beautiful spring flowers become available in winter.

A wonderful vase of tulips, daffodils, jonquils, Iris or scented freesia and anemones can lift the spirit on any dark winter day.

Spring flowers need no special care they are the easiest, never being subject to the heat of summer just pop in a vase and enjoy. They displace the water so don’t fill the vase too full and with lovely fleshy stems can live with out water for days.

Tulips are regularly sent to market dry packed but once in a vase of water watch them grow each day, they curl into the most wonderful artistic shaped this is unique to tulips no other cut flower does it quite the same.

Daffodils are popping up in my lawn at home first the slim leaves then the tight buds only to open during the next month or so. ’A host of golden daffodils’ What better way to cheer the spirit..

Did you know bulbs have to be chilled in a fridge for up to six weeks before being planted and forced for out of season production  coming earlier than nature intended for us to enjoy.

Spring is just around the corner but at your local florist it here already.. enjoy
