Plants for wedding gifts
Plants can make the perfect wedding gift to celebrate the happy couples' special day and blossom with their marriage. Plant presents last a lifetime for no more than the price of a decent bouquet of flowers. For something simple and classy, a single or pair of topiary cones, balls, spirals or lollipop standards work well. The married couple can position them either side of the entrance to their home, or intersperse them in the border as a foil for flowering plants. For something with flowers, camellia or magnolia are good options. Camellias are acid-loving plants boasting flamboyant flowers in shades of pink, red and white from autumn through to spring (depending on the variety) above attractive, glossy evergreen foliage. Magnolias have beautiful, distinctive, goblet-shaped blooms produced on bare stems before they come into leaf. They’re perfect for creating an instant impact, as standalone, specimen shrubs or small trees, either in the ground or a container. If your recipient has the space, fruit trees make wonderful presents, delivering a delicious organic crop that tastes better than anything from the supermarket. Roses are of course a staple choice with their beautiful, sweetly scented blooms, whilst Japanese maples are ideal if for a small, decorative tree with colourful foliage and a slightly oriental appearance. Plants are carefully packaged and delivered through the UK.
