Mother’s Day at our nursery is always a busy time of year, sometimes busier than Christmas. It really is the season for plants and flowers and there is no better way to show your mum how absolutely incredible she is than with a plant.

Mother’s day is celebrated at different dates in various countries, this year in the UK it is on Sunday 11th March. That is just over 2 weeks away!

The celebration of Mother’s Day came to the UK around 1910. It is a day in which many people celebrate the Mother’s in their family. But more than that it now has become about celebrating the influences on our society that mothers have, and recognising what Motherhood is and represents. To everyone this is different, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be celebrated by all.

Giving a plant this year means that your mother/matriarch/inspirational female will receive a gift that they can nurture and love, something that will be part of their home for many weeks or months (in some cases years), a reminder of you sat right there in front of them, looking fabulous!

Here are a few of our favourites that we think make the perfect Mother’s Day gift

Orchids– Grown by us in West Sussex, these stunning blooms really are a showstopper. Available in 5 different colours and all guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

Statement green houseplants- these stunning big spiky sanseverias  are an on trend, and stylish option. If you want to give a gift that will be easy to care for and something a little different then look no further!

Heart Shaped Succulent– our super cute little heart shaped succulents really are the sweetest little gift. Pair with a bottle of bubbles or some chocolates and you would be forever in the good books.

And don’t forget every one of our plants comes with their pots, and we can even write a personalised gift message for you, and send the plant directly to your mum!! Now that really would make her happy.
