The days are getting longer and the weather recovers slowly. Spring is in the air again! Let's celebrate with new flowers and plants. Flower Council Holland highlights different species this March.
The bromeliads is the Houseplant of the month. With its exciting shapes and tropical colors consumers get the best out of the rainforest in their homes. This plant is strong, easy going and has a flamboyant appearance and thus has everything to seduce the consumer.
Beautiful colours, sweet scents and - if you're lucky - a modest harvest of fruit; all those on their own are enough to make a citrus tree a lovely addition to the garden. But this Mediterranean beauty is also evergreen, so you can enjoy it all year long. The trees of the mandarin, lemon, lime, orange, kumquat and grapefruit each look slightly different, but they all have a sturdy trunk with a green crown. Another similarity is that they produce lots of blossom, like a warm and sunny spot, and lend an exotic note to your patio or balcony. They're classic container plants that need lots of light in both summer and winter.
An annual highlight is the assortment of spring flowers. The daffodils are keeping their heads up again and the hyacinths assert themselves. This year there is also ranunculus, not to be missed! These three spring bloomers are also prominent on the Flowers agenda in March.
