Which flowers are in bloom in Autumn?

Autumn is already here. The days are becoming visibly shorter and colder, the summery colors are starting to fade away and many flowers have already withered; does it make you feel nostalgic too?

Vegetational activity is starting to slow down in preparation for winter days, but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t any flowers to enjoy in the autumn season. Some of them actually hold over from the summertime, helping us combat the first signs of the autumnal melancholy.   

Whether you’re looking to get a seasonal wedding arrangement or simply wondering which flowers can currently be purchased at the best price, we’ve prepared this list of flowers that can still please the eye in those darker, fall months.

  • Allium, also known as ornamental garlic

  • Alstroemeria, commonly called the Peruvian lily or lily of the Incas

  • Anemone - which makes excellent cut flowers that should last in a vase for over a week

  • Aster - a beautiful perennial with yellow center and white, red, pink, purple, lavender or blue petals

  • Rudbeckia hirta, also known as Black-Eyed Susan is another strong plant that should last in a vase for up to 10 days

  • Carnation - an herbaceous perennial plant that comes in a variety of colors

  • Chrysanthemum - which can help reduce indoor air pollution

  • Cosmos - an herbaceous perennial from the sunflower family

  • Dahlia - an herbaceous perennial plant native to Mexico

  • Freesia - a very fragrant flower grown mainly for use as cut flower

  • Gerbera Daisy - florists’ favorite, right after roses and carnations; boasts a long vase life

  • Gladiolus - also known as the Sword Lily, is a perennial that signifies remembrance

  • Gloriosa - also known as flame lily is beautiful but toxic

  • Gypsophila - or Baby's Breath, is a bushy plant that survives after a week when cut and dries beautifully

  • Hydrangea - a popular flowering shrub that blooms from late spring to late autumn

  • Iris - a hardy herbaceous perennial that comes in many color combinations, including blue and purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black

  • Kangaroo paw - it has no fragrance, but makes an excellent cut flower; originates from Australia

  • Lily - an herbaceous flowering plant growing from bulbs. Its prominent flowers come in a wide range of colors including whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples

  • Nerine - a pink, dashing autumn flowering bulb, which will flower for years once it accommodates in your garden

  • Orchid - very colorful and fragrant; popular potted houseplants

  • Red Rover Mum - blooms from late summer through fall; there are annual and biennial varieties

  • Rose - some of the garden varieties of this woody flowering plant bloom only in fall

  • Solanum dulcamara, or Bittersweet nightshade - a semi-woody herbaceous perennial vine

  • Sunflower - yes! The stunning suncatcher blooms through the fall season as well

  • Zinnia - an annual and perennial plant that blooms from mid-summer all the way until the first frost

Looking for gifts for this Grandparent’s Day? 9 reasons why flowers are your best option

It’s obvious that as a floral business we’re quite biased on this opinion, but to make things clear, this post is based on some 35 years of careful observation, so I’m positive we’re giving you a solid reason to believe.  

I brought my grandparents quite a lot of different gifts during my lifespan, but from what I noticed, flowers were always the biggest hit. A thorough analysis of family gatherings helped me draw several conclusions. Here’s the entire list:

1. Your grandparents don’t really care about the gifts you get them. Thus, a piece of nature is the best thing you can give to someone who doesn’t really want anything.

2. Flowers will wither, but that’s why they’re better than gadgets that are likely to become redundant anyway; they won’t end up cluttering space and gathering dust.

3. There is no better looking gift than colorful flowers. They immediately transform any room and add positive energy to any space; that’s never a bad gift.

4. The flowers you give remind your dear grandparents you care about them, even when you aren’t physically there.

5. Flowers are eye candy, and eye candy is a great gift to anyone who regrets they can’t see you more often.

6.Flowers won’t make them put on weight. My Grandma would actually give me back the sweets I would bring her, leaving me feel stupid. Do you want to feel stupid?

7. I haven’t met a grandmother who isn’t happy about receiving colorful and vibrant flowers (I have a lot of friends who will back me up on this). When your grandmother is happy, your granddad is be too.

8. Not all grandads will admit to this, but they secretly like having something they can look after. In the end, their kids are grown and their mission is done. It may be why my Grandad does the best job at keeping alive the bonsai tree I gave him.

9. Even if your grandad won’t be happy with flowers or plants, he will give them to grandma, which will make her doubly happy. And you already know that when Grandma is happy, so is Grandpa. It’s a solid win-win.

One lifehack advice to the above list: there is nothing else that will make your grandparents happier than your company. Even a dozen of trolleys of flowers won’t beat it.

6 safe plants to boost your dog’s health today

6 safe plants to boost your dog’s health today

I’m sure you’re already taking care of your dog very well, giving him all the attention he deserves. You take him on long walks in nature regularly. You play with him to stimulate his mind. You have him checked by a veterinarian at least once a year. You even trim his nails  yourself because who else could do it better than you?

You also give him plenty of fresh water and good quality food; naturally, you treat his stomach just like you treat yours. After all, true friendship is so hard to find, one needs to do the best one can to make it flourish.

There is another thing you can do for your four-legged friend that you may not have heard of until now. Use your garden, terrace or just the window sill to start growing herbs that will do wonders for your dog’s health.

That’s right! Certain herbs will work magic for your dog’s health. You can just sprinkle them on your dog’s regular food; they are totally safe. Breakfasts of champions really make champions, so start taking greater care of your dog’s tummy (and overall health) today.  

  1. Fennel

Fennel has great benefits for the digestive system and virtually any part of this herb is suitable for consumption. The seeds are particularly good at eliminating intestinal parasites, so definitely use it during cleansing treatments.

  1. Dandelion

You’re more than likely to find this plant in your nearest meadow or park. This plant is quite a powerful diuretic, so bear in mind you’ll have to walk your dog more often if you include this herb in his diet. Dandelion is rich in potassium so it will keep your dog’s kidneys and liver in the highest order.

  1. Sage

Sage is another herb that helps ease digestive issues and bloating. In fact, it’s excellent at boosting the immune system and overall health. Be sure to only feed sage leaves to your dog (can be both fresh or dried).

  1. Parsley

Parsley is packed with minerals necessary for the proper functioning of bladder and kidneys. It maintains the right pH levels which keeps your dog’s tummy happy. Parsley improves digestion as well.

  1. Milk thistle

Milk thistle has detoxifying qualities, which is why it’s particularly good for strengthening liver functions. Healthy liver means healthy skin, so indirectly, this herb can also help treat skin problems. The less-commonly-known benefit is that it calms your dog’s temper.

  1. Peppermint

It’s super easy to grow at home and very effective at treating nausea and indigestion. It may be the best thing to give to your dog after it consumes a random find in the bushes; we’ve all been there and we know how it ends!

We’d advise that you consult with your vet if your dog is experiencing any digestive or other issues. Herbs have enormous health benefits, but they won’t substitute medicaments.
