Have you ever stopped to think about how many customs involve flowers? Where would a bride be without her bouquet? Going to a prom? Better get your date a corsage. Is it Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, an anniversary, or her birthday? Flowers are definitely recommended (bonus points if you know their favorite flowers). And no visit to Hawaii would be complete without wearing a colorful lei around your neck. Even horses get wreaths of flowers when they win a big race.
In addition to marking big events in our lives, flowers are also incredibly important to the food chain. Flowers attract bees, which spread pollen as they bumble along. Pollination is critical for plants to reproduce. If you’re a fan of strawberries, celery, beans, nuts, garlic… you want to make sure the bees have plenty of flowers to explore.
March 12 is National Plant a Flower Day. Not only will you help out the bees, flowers are pretty and smell nice, which is always pleasant. In addition to sowing seeds or cuttings, you can also get one of our flower mugs!
