Flowers are always a great gift. You should try it.

This is our top seller for Mother's day gifts or gifts for mothers and mother-figures. Looking at your budget though, I think we can still work something out.

Red Bromeliad or Ananasgiller

Good luck saying that fast cheesy

I don't know much about this, I know it's part of the pineapple family (Bromeliad) and it's tropical. I spotted it in a professional garden in Festac-town, Lagos and I don't think the gardener gave me much info on it. So if anyone knows about this plant, please share.

Bromeliads are wonderful indoor plants. There is a whole bunch of them in the family from the ones you have in the picture to ornamental pineapples, tilandsia and air plants. The airplants are the wierdest ones as they get all their nutrients from the air (they have no roots). Their flowers are very long lasting and colourful. Looks like plastic. Unfortunately I don't have any flowering bromeliads in stock right now and I am typing this post at a ridiculously early hour for me. As soon as I can I'll post some pictures.

Next to anthuriums, they are my favourite plant


Family / Re: 6 Romantic Valentine’s Day Ideas For Couples by rosety: 6:24am On Feb 07, 2016
3. Deliver roses at her office
On Valentine’s day, you can order 6 roses to be
delivered at her office. The romantic secret here is
that you pay the dispatch boy to deliver 5 roses
while you give her 6th one yourself amidst reading a
love poem to her. This is an excellent idea for
couples that do not see each other often.

We can help with this. But Vals this year is on a Sunday. You could have the roses delivered at a candle lit dinner

How is Valentine's Day celebrated around the world?

In parts of Europe lovers give each other St Valentine’s keys as romantic gestures and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart.

In Finland, Valentine's Day is called Ystävänpäivä, which means Friend's Day and focuses on remembering friends.

However, in Mexico, February 14 is a day of national mourning. In countries like Pakistan, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia celebrating the day can result in severe punishment and is seen by conservative Muslims as un-Islamic.

In Brazil, Valentine's day isn't celebrated in February because it usually falls on or around Brazil Carnival. Instead, Brazil celebrates 'Dia dos Namorados' on June 12.

Brazil's celebration honours Saint Anthony - the patron saint of matchmaking and marriages.

When did Valentine's Day become so commercial?

It was during the middle of the 18th century that Valentine's started to take off in England, with lovers sending sweets and cards adorned with flowers, ribbons and images of cupids and birds.

Eventually huge numbers of printed cards replaced hand-written ones. In 1913, Hallmark Cards of Kansas City began mass producing Valentine's cards.

Now about a billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged every year and it's the second largest seasonal card sending time of the year.

Romance / Re: All About Valentine's Day by rosety: 1:05pm On Jan 27, 2016
What's Cupid got to do with it all?

Cupid is just one of the ancient symbols associated with St Valentine’s Day – along with the shape of a heart, doves, and the colours red and pink.

He is usually portrayed as a small winged figure with a bow and arrow which he uses to strike the hearts of people. People who fall in love are said to be ‘struck by Cupid’s arrow’.

Why do some people leave Valentine's cards anonymous?

This trend was started by the Victorians, who thought it was bad luck to sign Valentine's cards with their names.

The Victorians also started the rose-giving trend. They were the favourite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love, and have come to indicatepassion and romance.

Nowadays, more than 50 million roses are given for Valentine's Day every year.

Romance / Re: All About Valentine's Day by rosety: 1:04pm On Jan 27, 2016
Some people believe the roots of the day stem from the ancient Roman festival of Lupercalia, dedicated to the god Lupercus. On this day young men would draw the name of a woman from a jar, and they would become a couple for the rest of the festival.

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear the name of the person on their sleeves - hence the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve".

Incidentally, the X symbol has come to mean a kiss because in medieval times most people couldn't write their names so they signed cards with an X and kissed it.

Over the years, February 14 became more popular and was romanticised by the likes of Chaucer and later Shakespeare.

In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared the day St Valentine's Day.

There is so much confusion around who St Valentine was that the Catholic Church stopped liturgical veneration of him in 1969, although his name remains on its list of officially recognised saints.
Romance / All About Valentine's Day by rosety: 1:04pm On Jan 27, 2016
Who was St Valentine?

The details are sketchy. Some say St Valentine was a priest from Rome who lived in the third century AD. Emperor Claudius II had banned marriages, believing married men made bad soldiers and St Valentine is thought to have arranged marriages in secret. He was jailed and sentenced to death for his crimes.

In jail, St Valentine apparently fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and sent her a love letter signed ‘from your Valentine’ on February 14, the day of his execution, as a goodbye.

a Please when is your next class? I want to take a floral arrangement course (more for centre pieces and Ikebana arrangement rather than bouquets). It's just for pleasure. Will you be able to accommodate that? Thanks.

Our next training class is set for Jan5th to 8th.

Have you thought of a small bouquet of flowers with a cuddly teddy bear? Or maybe a single rose stem with a dozen cupcakes. I'm trying to keep the cost inexpensive as you said. Flowers work for any classy babe. Trust me on that one.

Family / Re: How Possible Is It To Work From Home? by rosety: 9:28am On Nov 19, 2015
This will really depend on what you mean by working from home.
Is it a desk-like job where you interface with clients and colleagues through the cloud/internet? Or is it about running your business with your home as your office. In Nigeria, I believe there are a lot of people that do the latter.

As an example. I run a floral services company. We serve end users directly as well as a host of retail florists and free-lancers. Now the bulk of these free lance florists work out of their homes. No offices. They meet their clients either in church or through friends, clubs and referrals. Discussions are done over the phone, at public locations or the client's home/office. Then they come to my garden and purchase the flowers and accessories needed for the job, go ho e and make their designs and flower arrangements there before delivering to the client. Others simply ask me to do the job and deliver to them for onward delivery to the client without even leaving their homes.

Seeing that they make their purchases from me quite regularly with some of them coming 2 to 3 times a week every week, I can only assume the system works for them.

Now is this an example of working from home as you intended? Because I believe this is what most work-from-home Nigerians do.

We handled the bridal bouquets for this year's edition of My Big Nigerian Wedding. Here are some of the pictures.

Bridal flowers are an important part of the wedding ceremony. Some cultures see them as a representation of the bride's hope for her future.

Fashion / Re: How To Choose The Ideal Wedding Bouquet by rosety: 1:17pm On Oct 16, 2015
As florists based in Nigeria, with over 35 years experience in the Nigerian horticultural scene, I will add the following points.

When choosing a bridal bouquet for your wedding, first ask this question - are you using fresh natural flowers or silk/artificial flowers?
I will focus on fresh flowers here.

Next question is- are you particular about the bouquet or about your budget? With a large or unlimited budget, you can get almost anything. With a fixed budget, your choices are more narrowed down.

your focus is on the bouquet, the internet gives a lot of pictures and ideas to choose from. However, focus on Nigerian florists if you are in Nigeria. The reason is simple. Not all the flowers you see over the internet are available to the Nigerian market. Some flowers are seasonal. Others do not travel well due to their short lifespan. Some cannot handle the high humidity and temperature of Nigeria.

Finally, select your florist wisely. Ask for pictures of past work. Be sure you are not shown stock pictures from the internet. Try to get an understanding of the florist's capabilities. And book on time!!!

Many times we get invitations to or worse, pay for a training course in some hand-work that can earn us a living only to find out that it's just a lecture we are attending. No hands-on training, no practicals, and no support afterwards.

If you need the skills of a great floral designer? Rosety Gardens is giving you the opportunity.

Our training class begins August 25th to August 28th 2015.
Topics include
*Pre Handling
*Floral Wiring
*Bridal florals
*Hidden mechanisms for complexity and longevity
...and so much more.

For proper hands on tutoring, we are taking a very small number of students and so places are extremely limited.

PLUS all students get automatic discounts on flower purchases for the duration of A WHOLE YEAR!!! In addition to active support on costing and quantifying for as long as you need.

It can't get any better.

I worked with a client last year to do this. He took her out to see a movie while we set things up at his place. So when they get back, she sees the trail of rose petals lead all the way to a bed of roses and diamond lights with the ring on it. The bottle of champagne is for the celebration afterwards. wink
