Tips and Tricks for Hearty Fall Mums

One of the most popular and well-known fall plants is the vivacious fall mum. Make sure your fall mums get at least 6 hours of sunlight and do not let them dry out, this goes for both garden mums and indoor pots as well. Take care not to over-water as soggy soil can prevent them from flowering and cause root rot. The biggest sign of over-watering is yellow leaves that turn black and fall off.
 
Keep mums evenly watered to ensure the best flowering. It is possible to have annual mums if they are planted in the spring or summer and have ample time to establish a good root system. They can stay in the ground during winter (especially with a layer of mulch for colder areas like ours) if they are cut down to only a few inches above the soil but potted mums should be brought inside and watered to just slightly moist during winter dormancy.
 
Be sure to deadhead old blooms frequently to encourage new growth and enjoy the beautiful, full look of these marvellous mums!

Garden Advice for Geraniums

Geraniums make decent houseplants if you can provide them with lots of bright light. They like a cool temperature, so even if you keep your thermostat low, they should be happy. However, they’ll start to look gangly and gawky if you don’t provide enough light. There are a few techniques for winterizing geraniums, with or without a pot.
 
To winterize your beloved geraniums in a dormant storage phase, dig up the entire plant before frost and gently shake the soil from the roots. Place the plants inside open paper bags or hang them upside-down from the rafters in a cool, dark location for the winter.
 
When saving geraniums for the winter in pots, dig up your geraniums and place them in a pot that can comfortably fit their rootball. Prune the geranium back by one-third. Water the pot thoroughly and place in a cool but well-lit part of your house.

Ripping Up The Carpet Sale

We don’t have sales very often, so you should take advantage of this one. We are ripping up the carpet and replacing it with beautiful poured floors instead. We literally have to pack the entire store so help us get rid of stuff so we don’t have to pack it up. There are great deals on Christmas, Purses, Jewellery, Art and Home Decor. Up to 50% off from February 1st to the 23rd.

How to care for Roses

Care of cut roses and how to keep roses fresh longer is easy if you borrow a few basic tricks from the experts, the professional florists, (that would be us).
Step 1: Recut the stems. Use a sharp set of pruners and cut at a 45-degree angle, so there will be a maximum surface area for the stems to drink water through.
STEP 2: To improve the vase life of cut roses and to keep the roses fresh longer, immerse their stems in warm water immediately after cutting.
STEP 3: Add a packet of flower preservative.
STEP 4: Keep your roses out of direct sunlight and away from drafts to prevent drying out and wilting.
It is that simple, folks.
