Water-wise

Become water-wise with NetFlorist

Water is a natural resource that is absolutely necessary for all life forms on Earth. As population numbers increase, the important resource dwindles. The scarcity of water is not to be overlooked. It takes a natural phenomenon such as a drought to remind us to always be water-wise.

Succulent in a Cement Pot

R89.95

Water-wise

The drought in the Western Cape persists and it seems we can no longer depend on their rainy season to make up for the lack of water. It’s time for us to be proactive and take responsibility where we can! That is why NetFlorist has developed this particular Water Wise campaign. Send a cactus to someone special and we’ll donate R10 to drought relief projects in the Western Cape, proving you love more than one person.

Succulent Chalk Pot

R99.95

Water-wise

Spoil someone special with a sweet succulent which is displayed with white stones in a unique chalk pot which can be scribbled on with white chalk! This cute gift will certainly make an impact!

We’ve fondly named the campaign #LoveEveryone. Flowers say, ‘I love you’ but a cactus says, “I love everyone’. Spend time browsing through our cactus and succulent options, but also take a moment to look at home you can create a water-wise garden. Here are seven tips to take into consideration:

Water-wise

The perfect low maintenance gift for a friend or loved one, this small succulent in a blue ceramic glazed pot will look great sitting on their desk at home or at the office. Send this cute little plant as a great gift with NetFlorist today!

Choose locally suitable water-wise plants

There are a number of stunning plants that require minimal water. Plant said plants after the first rains. This gives the plant the opportunity to create a strong root system just before it faces the dry season. Choose indigenous plants and shrubs. They are usually less ‘thirsty’ than alien vegetation. Check that are both locally occurring and hardy, non-thirsty plants.

Group water plants according to their water needs

By grouping your plants according to their water needs, you avoid wasting water on plants that don’t need it. An irrigation system is best for watering your garden. They use controlled amounts of water, unlike a hosepipe. Another tip is to soak the ceramic pots instead of the actual plant. The ceramic retains moisture for longer and it seeps into the roots.

Reconsider grass

Grass lawns are incredibly ‘thirsty’. Be sure not to cut your grass too short as longer leaves shade the roots and reduce water evaporation.

Prepare the soil well

Make sure you dig in plenty of compost at least once a year. This helps aid the water retention of the soil. It also adds nutrients, encourages earthworm activity, improves aeration and drainage.

Use Mulch

Organic mulch helps to reduce evaporation, run-off, erosion, suppresses weed growth, enriches the soil and it helps prevent compacting of the soil. The best formula for making organic mulch is by mixing shredded leaves, straw, compost, shredded newspaper and grass clippings.

Water correctly and only when necessary

Save water by watering thoroughly but less often. Water when evaporation is at its lowest – in the early morning and late afternoon. A drip or underground irrigation also helps.

Create shade and windbreaks

Plant wind-resistant, fast-growing and water-wise trees and shrubs. Wind and the sun are both factors that can dry out plants.

Africa

Why we celebrate Africa Day

The 25th May is a day used specifically to celebrate Africa’s independence, freedom and liberation strife from colonial powers. The event commemorates the Organisation of African Unity, which is commonly known as the African Union – 25 May 1963. The move was originally inspired by Ghana’s independence. Ghana was the first country in the South of the Sahara gaining its independence on March 6, 1957. Ghana’s independence inspired other countries to fight against colonial rule.

“The evolution of humanity says that Africa reaffirms that she is continuing her rise from the ashes. Whatever the setbacks of the moment, nothing can stop us now! Whatever the difficulties, Africa shall be at peace!” – Thabo Mbeki former President of South Africa, “I am an African” speech delivered on 8 May 1996.

The day is celebrated annually, in many different countries across the continent. Events include formal gatherings and panel discussions, street marches, speeches by political and social leaders, and rallies featuring cultural entertainment, poetry and speakers. Choose to celebrate Africa Day the NetFlorist way. Honour the day by surprising a special someone with an Africa-themed gift. Keep the memory alive among the ones you love most.

One of our favourite options for the day reads:

“Africa is one of those places where you get to see the glory of the Lord, the wonder and miracles of restoration just, quite literally, unfold before your eyes.”

We loved the quote so much, we put it on a piece of wall art!

Congratulations

Crazy Amazing Congratulation Gift Ideas

Saying the word ‘Congratulations‘ truly matters. It is a joyful exclamation people use when someone has reached a milestone of some sorts. Offering congratulations is one’s way of commending someone on achieving a goal or accomplishing something difficult. We, therefore, congratulate someone if they have graduated, or have received a promotion at work they worked incredibly hard for. Saying the words ‘congratulations’ is also a way of recognising and supporting someone’s happiness and good fortune. This is why we congratulate people when we hear they have gotten engaged or have tied the knot!

When good things happen, we should react positively and acknowledge the event because it’s polite. It is also important to recognise the good things. Bad things happen daily. It’s very easy to get caught up in the negative and consequently cultivate a cynical attitude towards life. Be grateful for the positive things in life and celebrate the blessings of others. After all, “The surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” – Martin Luther King Jnr.

So, congratulate someone today, whether the milestone overcome is large or small (or maybe somewhere in between). Employ NetFlorist’s expert skills to execute the task with proficiency! Here are some of our top Congratulations gifts for any and every occasion:

Daffodils fall into the genus Narcissus. Narcissus was the name of a Greek god that fell in love with his own reflection. He didn’t realise that the reflection was his own. Every time he bent down to kiss it, the reflection would disappear. Narcissus grew increasingly thirsty, but would not leave or touch the water for fear of losing sight of his reflection. Eventually, he died of love and well, thirst… On that very spot he died, a narcissus flower grew.

DAFFODIL PLANT IN YELLOW BUCKET

R169.95

Daffodils

This bucket full of beauty will lift anyone’s mood, with a blooming daffodil plant which is presented in a yellow bucket tin with moss. Send now!

  1. Daffodils give off a sap that can be deadly to other plants. It is, therefore, advisable to plant them separately from other flowering plants. They are also poisonous to pets! A positive is that the plant is also rodent-resistant.
  2. Be sure to water the plant generously while the daffodils are blooming.
  3. Provide a handful of bulb fertiliser or any general-purpose fertiliser when shoots poke through the ground.
  4. When a bulb becomes ‘bloomed out’, more are produced to continue the plant. Divide daffodils every three to five years, or whenever you begin to notice that the flowers are smaller in size. Divide the bulbs when the foliage has died as the dead foliage will ensure healthy bulbs. The bulbs will have plenty of stored sugar for the next year’s growth.
  5. Use mulch to protect the flowering plant from cold, drying winds.
