Making a perfect gift and coming in lots of different flower shapes, Amaryllis is one of our firm favourites.

Start these bulbs in a warm and light place, keeping their compost moist by watering around the edge of the bulb. Once the buds are showing, water regularly, being careful not to over-water.

The secret to lengthening flowering time is to place in a cooler position once the flowers start to show. If the stem gets a little top heavy, you can add a plant stick for support!

The flame-like flowers of this Guzmania really capture the mood for this time of year!

As a member of the bromeliad family, Guzmania make excellent houseplants with their vivid colours, unique shapes and low maintenance.

Originating from the rainforests of central America, they prefer bright, natural light. An east or west facing room would be best but just be sure they avoid exposure to any direct, hot sun because they’ll suffer.

These plants have a central well which is how they naturally collect the water they need. You want to keep that 'cup' about 1/4 of the way full of water & flush it out with fresh water every 1-2 months. One tip is to let this cup go dry for 2-7 days before refilling.

If you have hard water, consider using distilled or purified water, taking care to not over do it as they don’t like to stay constantly wet.

Guzmanias, like other bromeliads, get their nutrients from the debris that falls onto them. The roots are just to anchor them onto whatever they’re growing on, such as trees or rocks. They don't really need feeding but if yours is looking like it needs a 'pick me up', try spraying an orchid food diluted to half-strength onto the foliage & the surface of the growing medium.

We think they'll make excellent companions for pumpkins at this time of year 🎃🎃🎃

Our friends from Dear mummy blog came into our West End centre recently to Vlog some early bird Christmas Shopping.

We'd like to thank them for such a great review! It looks like they had a great time, so why not come down to experience it for yourself?

For all you apple and pear growers - its time to get those grease bands on!

Winter moths are active around this time of year and can be trapped by applying grease bands to your trees, improving the quality of your fruit next year 🍏🍎🍏
