These are the quintessential flowers of the season, and what better way to put a spring in your mother’s step than to treat her to some beautiful tulips. Available in a range of stunning colours, this popular bloom can be tailored to her taste.
A firm favourite with women everywhere, lilies provide a beautiful scent to fill your mum’s home with a soft, vibrant atmosphere. The striking look of the lilies will dominate the day and show your mum how much of a big presence she is in your life. There are so many varieties of lilies to choose from, our personal favourite, which is easy to care, adaptable and low-maintenance houseplant is the Peace Lily.
Raise the bar with Ranunculi
If you want something a bit different this Mother’s Day, then ranunculus are cool season flowers that grow best in spring temperatures. Available in an array of rainbow colours, the gorgeous bright blooms look almost too perfect to be real. For an alternative to roses, these flowers are a more luxury gift for your mum’s special day.
Keep it real with Roses
Who doesn’t love a beautiful bunch of roses? They don’t always have to mean romance, the traditional English rose can also symbolise friendship, joy and love – making them the perfect pick for Mother’s Day. Our favourite, which is timeless, is the vintage Tahitian Sunset English Rose.
The beautiful lisianthus means gratitude and appreciation, making it the most ideal way to say thank you to your mum for all that she does this Mother’s Day. The very versatile flower comes in white, green, blue, pink, lilac and salmon with some petals having multiple colours. As a cut flower, they last for a really long time in a vase so your mum can enjoy the flowers longer!
There are some truly stunning floral bouquets you could pick up for your mum this Mother’s Day, but here are flowery favourites with some hidden, loving meanings. If you want to push the boat out and add an extra gift, then get your mum in the garden with some of these flowering seeds. The lisianthus and ranunculi make for some beautiful blooms.
Don’t forget to keep your loved ones’ hands protected with some safety gloves to round off your special gift. The Showa 541 is a cut-resistant glove providing a good protection against those accidental cuts and scrapes in the garden, especially when using sharp tools. With a breathable and supple design, they can be used for intricate garden work even in the height of summer.
