Daisies Daisies Daisies

Daisies are such classic flowers and they come in so many colours and sizes. When most people think of the Daisy they often associate it as being a white flower. When in fact the flower comes in many different colours and sizes. That being said, it can be hard to decide what one to choose and what would work best in your home or garden. But that’s where we come in, we have a large selection of daisy arrangements for you to choose from. 

The petals on the daisy are usually delicate, making the perfect for almost any occasion. Sine there are so many types, we’ll just talk about a few, the English Daisy, Shasta Daisy, the Painted Daisy.

English Daisy

The English Daisy has a classic yellow centre and long white petals (the common daisy). It’s origins are from Northern Europe and it is considered a hardy perennial. It’s also been distributed all over the world.

Shasta Daisy

Another classic daisy is the Shasta Daisy, it happens to resemble the English Daisy. However, it has a much larger yellow centre and grows much taller (1-3 feet). The Shasta Daisy is a hybrid by Luther Burbank in Mount Shasta California.

Painted Daisy

Known to be a very popular daisy in gardens due to their ability to attract butterflies. This plant has fern-like leaves that make it an attractive plant even after the flowers have bloomed. They’re also effective at repelling insects.

Roses form a group of plants that can be shrubs, climbing or trailing with stems that are often armed with sharp prickles. Roses range in size from compact, miniature to climbers that can reach 7 meters. Since there are so many species of roses we won’t talk about all of them today. 

Today we’ll talk about 3 different types of roses, The Rosa Eden, Princess Alexandra and the Rosa “Mister Lincoln.”

Greenhouses

In Canada, we have greenhouses that supply the need for retailers. But have you ever wanted to know what country is the largest producer? Or how the Canadian greenhouse industry works? 

The Floral Industry 

The floral industry is one of the largest industry in the world. Providing jobs and resources for many communities. Floriculture began in the late 19th century in the United Kingdom. Flowers were grown on a large scale on vast estates. And today the floral industry is a dynamic, global and fast-growing industry.

The Netherlands remains the centre of the production for the European floral market. As well as a major international supplier to other countries. The flower market in Aalsmeer is the largest in the world. For example, Dutch growers produced over 8 billion blooms is 1995. 

Greenhouses in Canada 

In Canada we have a very large community of greenhouse growers. The organization that many belong to is called, Flower Canada Growers. They have a directory of greenhouses that are dotted all across the country. Making it easy for florist to buy their flowers.

Flowers bring us all a sense of joy and love and they make us feel special. They can change the atmosphere of our homes, whether thats on the outside in a garden or inside. It’s truly amazing how flowers can change our lives.
