If there′s one person you can always rely on, it's your mother. Surprise her with beautiful plant gifts, on Mother's Day or any other time, because there′s always a good reason to pamper your mother
Plant gifts are popular because they last longer and can be used indoors or outdoors, and the plant kingdom is a veritable cornucopia when it comes to finding a personal and beautiful gift that will delight your mother.
Roses for Mother
If your mother is the romantic type, roses are the perfect greeting. Equip the family′s youngest with a basketful of fragrant roses for Gran, and there won′t be a dry eye in the house. Roses can first of all be enjoyed indoors, and then planted out in pots and beds.
If the recipient likes the modern and simple style in interior design, you could hardly imagine a more meaningful greeting than a sculptural plant, such as an orchid shaped like a heart. Orchids come in a variety of colours and sizes, and are bound to be a hit with Mother.
A plant that is sculptural and romantic at the same time is hydrangea, which has become extremely popular in recent years. This is first and foremost because hydrangeas can be used in so many different ways, both indoors and outdoors: as a beautiful, lush greeting at the front door, or planted out in garden beds, where they will eventually develop into a low bush.
A handful of love
You can hardly avoid choosing one of Mother's favourite colours if you choose dahlias - their warm and vibrant shades make them some of the happiest flowers of summer. Dahlias bloom until well into the autumn, and can be combined so that they match the garden pots and garden furniture cushions. Dahlias are also nice to pluck and place in vases, so that they can be also enjoyed indoors.
Lively and temperamental
The path of true love never runs straight, they say, and no plant expresses this better than the unpredictable and exciting climbing plant Passiflora, as it winds and twists. If you are dextrous you can easily add your own touch to the gift with wattle, in which you let the vines twine like a sculpture along the branches. Passiflora's intense and unruly expression is well suited to a lively and temperamental mother.
Let yourself be inspired by the huge selection of super-trendy summer plants, and delight your mother with a personalised greeting, no matter what day of the year it is!
