Valentine's Day Recap 2011
Our biggest holiday is a fading memory to us now. Valentine's Day was a wonderful success thanks to our customers, staff, and helpers. We delivered 180 arrangements on Valentine's Day and spread smiles from Mt.Zion to Forsyth and everywhere in between.
To read more about what goes into a successful Valentine's Day we wrote a blog post all about it. To see what we have to offer check out our facebook album.
Spring in The Garden~
We are ready for spring to arrive here at The Secret Garden. Spring is one of the most decorated for seasons. It is the season of new beginnings and wonderful colors and scents. From the first bud on the tree to the tulips peaking through the ground, this season brings a promise of new life and renewed spirit.
Did you know that we custom make silk wreaths? We sure do, just stop and we will discuss colors, flowers, and designs with you today. We can create something that will last for years to come. Our designers have over 37 years of experience and have a passion for wreaths. We also create silk pieces for mantles, tables, and more.
This spring we are awaiting arrival of new merchandise as well. We will be posting it to facebook as it comes in so be sure to become a fan of our page so you don't miss a thing. We just ordered a beautiful line of cards from leanin' tree and they should be arriving in the store around March 1st. This is very exciting for us and you will just love the designs.
We are also planning on adding yard flags and new garden items to our assortment of gifts. If you have not seen our gift selection it is worth the trip out to see us.
Daffodil ~ March Birth Flower
What a fitting flower for the month of March, you will see these little flowers popping up everywhere very soon.
Now your daffodils may not look exactly like this one, some say that there are over 200 different species of daffodils out in the world today. You may find that your daffodils are the best growers in your garden, you would be correct. The bulbs will outlast just about any other bulb you plant. Don't worry if you do not see new blooms on your fresh daffodil plants, sometimes they take up to 5 years to fully come into their glory. And depending on where you live, these beauties can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months.
But one thing you should know about your daffodil is that they do not play nice with other flowers when cut. We store daffodils away from the other flowers and do not use them with other flowers. The sap in the stems will harm other flowers, guess it is there way to insure that they are center stage on your desk or table.
Arrangement of The Month ~
We have an exciting new program that we will be unveiling this month. It is called the Arrangement of the Month. We will select an arrangement and have our facebook friends name it. It will then be featured in our cooler, on our website, and available all month long. This is something we have been thinking about for a while now and we did it in the fall with our live pumpkins. We can't wait to see what you think. These arrangements will be designed by our designers and feature seasonal flower. So be sure to look for that on our facebook pageas well as our promotions blog in the coming week.
