Why not venture out of the ordinary and treat your mum to a houseplant this Mother’s Day – a gift she can enjoy and nurture throughout the year.
Beautiful colours and a tropical look, the Bromeliad, also chosen as our Houseplant of the Month, is flamboyant and grows in a strong fountain shape flame (or even a Pineapple!) – great for mums who shun the traditional. It may look exotic, but they are easy plants to look after and last for up to 6 months.
For instant, floral satisfaction - you can't beat a beautiful Hydrangea! English botanist Sir Joseph Banks brought a Hydrangea back to Europe for the first time at the end of the eighteenth century. A showstopper full of delicate blooms - this plant is the perfect fit for any home and one we know she will love.
The Flamingo plant
The Flamingo plant (Anthurium) is one which glows with happiness when placed in the light. As its name suggests, it is a statement plant which stands strong on its own. It instantly lifts its surroundings with its bright colours of red, pink, purple and yellow and is sure to brighten your mum’s home.
The potted rose has all the style and quality of its big sister but can be admired from the comfort of your own living room (or your mother’s in this case!). They come in all flower sizes and colours, making it a popular choice - and with the right care they will flower profusely for a long time. Keep that love coming!
