Honouring mothers has its place in antiquity with festivals and events held throughout history to honour the vital role mothers play in our lives and society. The Roman festival of Hilaria was one such example of ancients celebrating motherhood. However the more modern version of Mother’s Day began in 1908 when U.S. citizen Anna Jarvis started a movement to recognise mothers in the second week of May.
The tradition has since spread around the world.
The second Sunday in May is now locked in as Mother’s Day in Australia and nothing is more synonymous with the day than a big bunch of flowers. Australians, like sons and daughters the world over, like to honour and pay respect to their mothers on the designated Mother’s Day with the ubiquitous floral tributes.
As the saying goes “nothing says it better than flowers” however, while a tried and tested tradition, have you thought of taking the floral gift idea one step further? Instead of a wonderful bunch of flowers for Mum on Mother’s Day, which usually only has a life of a few days, why not consider buying tubestock with the potential for a far longer life?
Here at Evergreen Growers we have a range of tubestock available to buy online or at our nursery in Dural. We are famous for our quality plants and customer service. However this weekend we have a special offer to add to these attractions.
