Marigold (October Flower of the Month)

The vibrant rich oranges, yellows, reds and burgundies of Marigolds are the perfect coloured flower for October.



The Marigold has many uses including quite a few for medicinal purposes. It assists in the treatment of skin irritations and the sap of the stem has been used to remove warts, corns & calluses.

Because of the bright coloured hue of the flowers it is not surprising that they extract the pigment from the flower to use as a dye. Potted marigolds are edible and are also often used for a garnish on dishes.

The Marigold does have a strong scent that helps keep the insects from swarming around them. When watering your Marigolds they prefer to be watered from the bottom as opposed to watering overhead as the bloom of some varieties might rot.

Another helpful tip to remember is that you will get more flowers to bloom if you do not use fertilizer.

The pumpkin coloured flower is a perfect representation for the Fall and October.

Pleasant Things I Enjoy About Fall

Hi there, it’s Ken Bolt from Brant Florist and this time of year is fun in many ways. All four seasons are interesting to me, but fall has a special charm that many people seem to enjoy more than they do the other three seasons. There are three things I enjoy most about this time of year: planting things that I won’t see until Spring, collecting the colorful things that seem to be everywhere this time of year, and walking in the woods.

Beautiful Fall Walk

Beautiful Fall Walk

To be honest, I like walking in the woods no matter what the season is, but in the fall, it goes hand-in-hand with collecting colors and watching the flurry of last minute activity from the animals that are getting ready for the long, cold months ahead.

Planting bulbs is another activity I enjoy and it’s often shared with those I love. This year, we replaced several tulips on the property that had been absent this spring. Sometimes, the little guys just don’t make it through to the next year for whatever reason. It’s part of the life cycle. We also took the opportunity to prune roses, clear a few things, and cut back some trees. We’d considered planting another one, but went with a hydrangea instead, which we will prune and train to be tree-like.

Between our excursions so far and the grand kids appearing with their bags of finds, we have a lot of color in our house. Fall leaves are one of my favorite things and the children pressed dozens of them in books last year, which I’m still finding when I open the pages of long-forgotten tomes now. It’s a funny thing, as I recall digging out an old photo album a few years ago when our grandson was born and flipping through its pages to find an old oak leaf fluttering out from where one of the kids had placed it back who-knows-when. It fluttered like a forgotten memory, reminding me that this page in particular had struck someone as important at one time and they’d marked it with a yellow oak leaf. The photos themselves were of Thanksgiving with the family, a year or two before someone close had died.

These are the things that make fall great for me. What about you?

Goodbye Summer….Hello Fall SUNFLOWERS!

Sassy Sunflowers

We’re nearing the end of August and in a heartbeat summer will be a distant memory. We’ll miss all that the summer season has shared with us including many fabulous summer weddings, fun in the sun parties, the arrival of new babes, happy birthday celebrations and of course, all the flower arrangements that we have created for these wonderful occasions. Now, we can barely catch our breath as the cooler nights signal the arrival of autumn. What this means at Brant Florist is the arrival of sunflowers!

We love sunflowers for their simplistic beauty, awesome hit of color and bold presence. And in honor of sunflower season, allow us to share a few fun facts about this beloved flower. The scientific name for sunflower is Helianthus. In Greek helios means sun and anthos means flower, hence sunflower. More than sixty varieties of sunflowers can be found around the world and they are thought to be native to the Americas, (North and South). In fact, sunflowers were cultivated by Native Americans over 1000 years ago. The sunflower blossom is comprised of petals and a central disk. The short petals, which look like the rays of the sun can be yellow, red, maroon, orange and some varieties even have striped petals. Sunflowers have a unique trait called heliotropism where the bud of the sunflower turns to face the sun at all times throughout the day, starting the day facing the east and ending it facing west.
