Spring Bulbs for Mother’s Day

by Charlotte.Barnes on February 20, 2013

Spring BulbsThe great thing about Mother’s Day is that you aren’t just limited to buying a bunch of flowers – there are so many other floral gift options out there.

In fact when it comes to choosing something for mum (or mum-in-law or grandma) as long as it’s pretty and in flower they’ll be happy. This could be anything from an expensive designer arrangement to a simple, gift-wrapped plant.

Mother’s Day is the perfect time to take advantage of all the spring bulbs. Not only do they make great gifts but they keep growing after the day has been and gone; plus, they can be planted in the garden and will flower next year too!

Mother’s Day around the world

by Charlotte.Barnes on May 13, 2012

Although for us in the UK Mothering Sunday whizzed past in March, there’s also International Mother’s Day to come. This year it falls on Sunday May 13th.

It started off in America with Anna Jarvis. She made Mother’s Day official after her own mother campaigned for it for so long. It is now a day to celebrate mothers all around the world. And don’t forget that if you want to say thank you to someone in America then you can send flowers to the USA.

Mother’s Day in the US has no connection to our own Mothering Sunday. Early American settlers from England dropped the idea of Mother’s Day, most likely because they wanted to pursue a more conservative Christian life and the day wasn’t considered a holy enough festival to continue.
