About Benny Bloom

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
  • I’m an avid reader of romance novels (a little too much for my own good).
  • I am fun, flirty and quirky but unfortunately, I can be very clumsy. I’ve been told I’m blind to the real world, but I still don’t see it!
  • I’d love to think I’m funny, but not to worry, it’s usually at my own expense (Mother told me never to be mean)!
  • As a hopeless romantic, I’m somewhat of a relationship expert and will ensure to give the best advice for flower gifts that will get you out of any sticky situation, no matter the occasion!

 

YOUR FAVOURITE FLOWER?

Mhmm… It’s difficult to choose. On one hand, the rose is the flower and handmaiden of love, so it’s as radiant as the day is long. But the lily, to me, is the emblem of beauty and purity. I love the rose for its various shades of floral brilliance. Whether it’s an anniversary gift or a love and romance gift, you can never go wrong with a radiant rose bouquet or rose vase. Pink roses represent admiration and hopeful love and affection, white roses convey virtue and unity, whereas red roses symbolise true and endless love.

I love lilies for their subtle beauty; since lilies come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors, they are the perfect flower gift for any special occasion. So, whether you’re looking for a thank you gift that will express heartfelt gratitude to the one you value the most, or a birthday gift that is sure to melt the heart of a graceful woman, lilies are an extraordinary gift to give.

 

YOU CAN’T SURVIVE WITHOUT?

TULIP MEANINGS:

A variety of tulips can symbolise a variety of meanings, and each colour is a representation of feelings that are beyond words. The primary significance of tulips is perfect and unconditional love, which like tulips, comes in many forms. Red tulips are most strongly associated with true love and are reminiscent of a love that’s beyond measure. Our purple tulips symbolise royalty, power, luxury, and a sensational serenity which most people strive to achieve. What’s interesting is that yellow tulips used to be reminiscent of hopeless love but nowadays, they are more associated with happiness and cheerful thoughts. Who doesn’t love a heart filled with boundless joy?

White tulips, on the other hand, represent purity, innocence and endless worth and are said to bring good fortune and tend to also convey exquisite beauty. Whether you are a person who loves beyond measure, or you’re planning to surprise someone who loves you unconditionally, tulips are among the most perfect flower gifts online. Need to know more?

 

FUN FACTS:

  • Between 1634 and 1637, tulips were the most expensive flower in the world, and it is said that tulips cost almost 10 times what an average working-class man earned in a year; this time period was known as “Tulip Mania.”
  • In South Africa, tulips bloom in the winter which means they are rare in the warmer months of the year. In warmer seasons, they are, however, usually grown in cold rooms to make up for the high temperature.
  • Worldwide, tulips are the third most beautiful flower behind roses and carnations, and the third most popular flower behind roses and chrysanthemums.
  • Tulips are the only cut flowers that grow in water!
  • Tulips feel the drop in temperature at night and close their petals.
  • About 90% of South Africa’s tulips are exported.
  • Fresh tulips are better on their own or in a bouquet, as they have a five-day life expectancy.

 

At NetFlorist, tulips are among our favourite fresh flowers and if you’re looking for unique wedding flowers online, tulips are among the most popular wedding flowers in the world. They are also ranked among the most beautiful anniversary flowers, so the next time you forget the moment your heart was stolen, our exquisite tulips are sure to jog your memory and express endless love to your only love!

 

TAKING CARE OF YOUR TULIPS:

One thing to keep in mind is that tulips are very low in maintenance and require very infrequent watering or tending, which makes them the perfect drought resistant flower for the cold season. Let’s face it; it’s the winter season, and we’d all rather be in bed than out watering a flower every 5 minutes!

Here’s a small tip, always buy tulips while they are still in bud, as that would ensure that they have opened beautifully by the time they are in the arms of someone special to you. Once the pores have closed:

  • Cut down the bottom of the stems to reopen the pores so they can reabsorb the water.
  • Place the tulip in a vase and add about 5cm of water. Ensure to top water up once a day, and be careful not to overwater it. This would cause the water to be absorbed faster and the head to to flop sooner.

 

TAKING CARE OF YOUR TULIP PLANTS:

  • Tulip plants are grown in cold rooms in South Africa.
  • Keep the plants away from heat as it causes faster development.
  • Only water your plant twice a week. If you want, you can put water in a drip tray and place your tulip pot in there so it can absorb the water as needed.
  • Once the colour of the tulip flower starts showing, the life expectancy of the tulip plant is around a week to a week and a half.
  • Once the flower dies, you can cut it down and take the bulb out of the soil. Place it in a dry and dark place, or plant in a dry area in the garden.
  • The bulbs multiply in the ground in their dormant state.
  • In the late summer, you can plant your bulbs again for them to bloom during the winter season.

Tulips may be seasonal, but their beauty and what each petal stands for, is timeless. The flower fairies at NetFlorist ensure that each one of our tulips capture the essence of the occasion. When tulip mania dies down, all that remains is a seasonal elegance that will make their heart smile. So, whether you’re ordering tulips online from us, or you’re growing your own tulip flowers and tulip plants, let NetFlorist be your one-stop online flower delivery store.
