  1. Hi,

    This is a great post for the enthusiastic flower lovers. I will be sharing this with my mother in law. Are there certain times of year when these are at their best? Also, how long can you expect cut flowers to last, or does this depend on the type of flowers?

    • Hello, Tom so good to hear from you. Cut flowers are really amazing and can do wonders. It all depends on the season so having some information on the best time to cut that particular flower will help. Cut flowers can last up to a week or longer once maintenance tips are followed. Hope this helps and all the best to you.

  2. When it comes to mother’s day, I always wonder what type of flowers to get my mother or which to ask for myself. I know its supposed to be according to our likes however, I’ve always wanted to know what it contains to choose which to plant in gardens.  Not to mention, some contain natural things that can help our bodies. 

    • Cut flowers are really amazing and can brighten up our day especially when bringing them indoors which is a great way to connect with nature so happy to help and have a good day.

  3. Great article, There’s nothing like a lovely big vase of flowers to brighten a room. Lots of great ideas here. My mother always used to have flowers everywhere. They’re so stylish!. I found your information on preserving cuttings very useful too, and I didn’t realise the benefits chrysanthemums have with regard to insect control. thanks so much for sharing.

  4. Hello — I really like your post, as I love flowers.  It is not always easy to get flowers here in Alaska.  Juneau has flower shops, but I live a half-hour flight away.  Do you know if there is any service that can ship cut flowers to my location?  Not an easy question, because I’m so remote, but would like to find out.

    I love lilies, because they are so elegant.  Sad that it is sometimes hard to find them.  I read your thorough little post on how to preserve flowers.  That is so helpful.  What’s your take on putting an aspirin in the water?  I’ve heard that helps keep them fresh longer.

    Thanks for posting.  Perhaps you could do an article on perennials.  I’m always interested in a new flower that will come back every year.
