FEBRUARY – LOVE YOUR GARDEN SO MULCHkk-admin
February is often referred to as the month of love, and it’s no wonder, with Valentine’s Day falling in the middle of it. In the northern hemisphere, February 14th is traditionally regarded as the day when birds choose their mates, so it seems that it’s not just humans that are busy declaring love at this time.
Whether you want to declare your love openly or anonymously, there is no finer or more expressive way to let the man or woman of your dreams know how much they mean to you than by saying it with flowers.
As gardeners, we’re used to lavishing lots of love and attention on our gardens – and it shows in the amazing floral displays that can be seen in all the best gardens at the moment. Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to combine our love for horticulture with our love for that special someone.
Roses may be the traditional way of showing someone you love them, but as with any cut flower, they’ll soon start to fade. Surely we can find a better way to express everlasting love – a love that will grow and mature and still blossom many years from now?
Rather than giving someone long-stem roses, give them long-term roses – a living rose bush that they can treasure and nurture for many years, in the same way that they will treasure and nurture your love.
Of course, it can be hard to give your sweetheart a rose bush anonymously, so you could instead create a bouquet of blooms and foliage from your own garden. Spend some time learning the language of flowers – each one has its own special meaning.
To help get you in the mood for love, we have some wonderful February promotions at Keith Kirsten Waterfall Wild. As you’d expect, roses feature prominently (we won’t tell anyone that you didn’t pay full price!) and we have a variety of other offers to let you express your love for your partner, your secret crush, your garden, and even your feathered friends.
If you’re in need of inspiration for gifts this Valentine’s Day, pay a visit to Keith Kirsten Waterfall Wilds – we’d love to help you pick the perfect present to hand over when you say those three little words: I love you!
