Hydrangeas in season!

HYDRANGEA IMAGEThis month in gardens all over cooler states, Hydrangeas are blooming! Blooming usually from Spring through Fall, these flowers are a long-time favorite with large fluffy blooms and an incredible variety of colors ranging from pastels to jewel tones. Hydrangea are naturally thirsty flowers and usually don’t grow well down here in Florida because of the heat. But that doesn’t stop our store from being full of these incredible flowers. With such versatile colors, hydrangeas can be worked into almost any floral arrangement and just about any color scheme. The acidity level in the soil actually helps to determine the color of the hydrangeas we offer. Many species of hydrangea are naturally white, but other species are affected by the pH of the soil that they are grown in. Acidic soil can produce the ever coveted blue hydrangeas while alkaline soil creates a pinker hue. Come check out these incredible flowers today!

Flowering Facts: Anthuriums

Anthurium

  • Anthurium cut stems are available to purchase all year round and have a vase life of 14-28 days.
  • They should be stored in cool temperatures, but not below 45°F.
  • Re-cut the stems about ½ inch every five days.
  • Anthuriums come in shades of red, burgundy, white, pink, orange, green, brown and variegated.
  • The potting soil preferred by Anthuriums is one that retains moisture but is also well draining.
  • The plant needs to stay moist at all times but should not be water-logged. The soil can either be watered thoroughly and then allowed to slightly dry before re-watering or the plant can be watered every two to three days with a small amount of water.
  • Anthuriums need moderate warmth with their environment.  They do best at   60-90°F. Temperatures above 90°F can cause loss of blooms, drying of foliage and fading of the plant.
  • Anthuriums needs plenty of bright indirect sunlight throughout the year. Keep the plant at least five feet from windows to prevent burning or overheating especially during the summer months.
  • Repotting should be done every two years in the spring.
  • One common problem with Anthuriums is gnats which can be prevented by keeping the plant free of standing water and dead foliage.
  • Keep Anthurium plants away from pets and children as they are considered toxic if consumed.

Flowering Facts: Bromeliads

  • BromeliadInflorescences (the flowering parts of a plant) may arise from the “cup” or be born within the “cup.” The “cup” or the “vase” is formed in the center of many bromeliads by overlapping leaves and is a holding tank or reservoir for water.
  • Bromeliads can be used in the landscape in frost-free areas of the state or grown in containers that can be moved indoors in areas where freezes occur.
  • The majority of bromeliads thrive outdoors in Florida’s high summer temperatures, even in excess of 100°F. In a home, bromeliads do best at 70-75°F during the day and between 60 and 65°F at night.
  • In south Florida, bromeliads can be grown outdoors unprotected during most winters.
  • In a home, a window with a southern, eastern or western exposure is satisfactory for bromeliad growth, but most species must not be exposed to direct sunlight.
  • A yellowish or pale green plant may indicate too much light and a darker green plant may indicate not enough light.
  • Bromeliads are extremely tolerant of low-moisture conditions and will survive prolonged periods of drought.
  • Bromeliads grown in a potting mix or in the landscape should be watered when the soil surface feels dry.
  • Plants grown in pots should be watered thoroughly, until water runs out of the bottom of the pot and then not watered again until the surface feels dry. Watering thoroughly once a week is usually sufficient.

Fun Facts: Earth Day

Earth-DayEarth Day is the celebration of our home and home to all the animals and ecosystems throughout. Did you know that in some elementary schools, after Halloween and Christmas, Earth Day is the largest celebrated holiday? It is now observed in 175 countries and is the largest secular modern day holiday in the world. Here are some interesting, fun facts for you to recycle to your friends and get in the “go green” mindset.

• Each year billions of used batteries are thrown away in the United States. This constitutes 88% of the mercury and 54% of the cadmium deposited into our landfills.
• Each gallon of fuel releases 20lbs of Carbon Dioxide into the air.
• Approximately 5 million tons of oil produced in the world each year ends up in the ocean.
• Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for 3 hours – it’s equal to half a galloon of gasoline.
• Earth Day is a relatively new holiday and was first celebrated on April 22nd in 1970. More than 20 million Americans participated in this first Earth Day celebration.
• Earth Day was founded by the senator of Wisconsin.
• April 22nd is the first official day of spring in the Northern hemisphere and of fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason.
• Energy we save when we recycle 1 glass bottle is enough to light a traditional light bulb for 4 hours.
• 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into the ocean every year.
• Never underestimate the importance of recycling: if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year.
• More than 20,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil. All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it.
• Only 11% of the earth’s surface is used to grow food.
• A highlight of the annual Earth Day ceremony at the United Nations is the ringing of the Peace Bell that was given to the UN by Japan. It is made from coins given by school children to further peace on our planet.

Let’s try and make our home a much greener place to live… – Happy Earth Day!
