Plant for office 室內植物種類

1. ZZ Plant ( Zamioculcas zamifolia ) 金錢樹


Each of the branches coming from the compost is actually a leaf and the ' leaves' are leaflets coming of them. An easy and very impressive plant for a semi shady room.

2.Dracaena 馬尾鐵


Regarded highly as a garden plant in warmer climates. This Dracaena is a stunning houseplant with wide brightly marked leaves and thick woody stems. It will tolerate lower light levels but the yellow band will become greener with time.

3. Ficus Lyrata - fiddle Leaf fig 琴葉榕


Large strangely shaped glossy leaves (hence the name!) grow in a whorl up the long straight stem of this shapely fig. Branches will grow from the leaf bases in time creating a wonderfully exotic specimen.

4. Pachira aquatica 發財樹(扭桿)


Another rarity in the houseplant world, Pachira is a slightly bizarre plant that is generally sold as three or more stems that have been plaited together to form a single trunk. Out of this trunk grows large leaves composed of 6-9 leaflets. A great conversation point as a specimen plant.

Garden Style - Decorations made easy! 庭園風格花佈置






No more big red roses, floral balls, no tall vases that block the views, just small pieces and bottle here and there! That's flowers just almost like hand picked! The guest in surrounding not even notices their presence."I wanted something simple and laid back". That's the point!
庭園風格的花園不要大堆的玫瑰花,工整的擺設。不要高身的花瓶在擋住視線。只要田園小花細緻的擺佈在角落,數不清花的品種之多。只要簡簡單單,原始不做作!

But sometimes, it may not be equal to less budget you would expected.

但因為特別少見的襯花通常是荷蘭入口,細細碎碎的也要大量金錢,要早點有個預算啊!

American Roses Bouquet 大頭美國瑰花束



Different color of American Roses bouquet, with holland assorted flowers.

http://fleur.hk/sfo/WebObjects/fleur.woa/wa/F/flower?f=150

American Roses are feature by their large head size. They will be last longer than the dutch bleed kind of roses that commonly growth in China. People will be amazed by their size, but they are generally not too fragrance.

The american roses are shipped from Ecuador, to Holland and then to Hong Kong. They can be use to refrigerate a long time without opening too soon, and less prong to remove. Florist love to use them for a reason!

Autumn theme wedding - Peach and brown color






This is a garden and natural style bouquet, randomly picking about 6 roses, a lot of filler of different type. Flowers arrange in a whimsical way and just like you pick it out yourself from the garden. That's your character!

田園的花束,玫瑰不是主角,零碎密集的碎花和葉,好像隨手拈來,不工整的野花一束,和你不拘小節的個性一樣嗎?

Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) care instructions 朱頂蘭的打理方法



Instructions on how to take care Amaryllis.

In the home: 朱頂蘭的打理方法:

1. Slant cut the stems and stand in fresh water. It is advisable to cut a small piece off the stems every two days to achieve maximum vase life. 每隔兩天換水剪腳。
2. Moving the flowers into a different vase or replacing the water in the vase will not impair their vase life. 換花瓶的水對花沒有影响。
3. Do not forget that the hollow stems of Hippeastrum are filled with water. Drain them above the vase when moving them. 花莖中空,當拿起會有水倒出。
4. When using Hippeastrum at an angle it is advisable to push a stick into the stem to prevent it from bending. It would normally take 10 to 14 days before this occurred.當在大約一星期左右,中空的花莖要放竹枝扶直,以防倒下。
5. Hippeastrum grows taller as the flower opens. Ensure there is plenty of space above the flower ( 20 cm) to accommodate this growth. 花會長高,要預有空間。
6. Hippeastrum does not need cut flower food but can tolerate it. 可以不用鮮花水,下亦無損花。
7. Remove dead blooms to maintain the ornamental value. 可以剪去凋謝的花頭。
8. When Hippeastrum has been standing in water the base of the stem will turn red and start to curl back. This has no ill effects on the flower’s ability to absorb water.
花腳會向外辦出,但不會影响花吸水的能力。可以預先在花腳貼上膠紙或用黑色花瓶。

七夕情人節 Happy Chinese Valentine's day



2009年七夕情人節是:農曆七月初七,西曆8月26日。 分隔兩地的戀人們要送花給女朋友啊!


每年的農曆七月七日是中國的情人節。比起外國的情人節更是專指向「愛情」。因為外國的情人節,原旨是人與人之間的互愛,或親情、或友情、或愛情,並非只限於男女之情。但是中國的七夕情人節,則是描述一對情侶的故事。

傳說,天上玉皇大帝有七個女兒,其中最小的女兒織女,最聰明可愛、手藝又巧。天上皇宮中的重要織錦都由她負責設計與製作。另外,玉皇大帝有一群牛,由一個叫做牛郎的年輕人負責管理。兩人情投意合、互相愛慕,至荒廢了原本的工作。於是玉皇大帝下旨,叫喜鵲告訴這兩個熱戀的情侶要節制,七日見一次面即可。沒想到喜鵲傳錯話,他們以為每天均可相見,更是高興無比,工作完全拋在腦後。

玉皇大帝這回就龍顏大怒,降旨他們每年只能見一次面,就是農曆七月七日的晚上。那一天喜鵲這群肇事者就負責搭橋,讓他們兩人踩在他們的肩膀上相會。因為一年僅能見一次面,當然有說不完的衷曲、道不盡的悲情,於是那天幾乎都會下著毛毛雨,象徵兩人的淚水。

炎夏買花小貼士 - Flowers for hot summer!!



炎炎夏日,購買鮮花,清新的香氣可以趕走悶熱,放在辦公室或家居,寫意一下。問題是,那種花好?如何選擇?
以下有一些小貼士給大家!

1) 玫瑰花在夏天的高溫,好花打開,吸水特別快。有網的玫瑰如果超過一天,因為綁緊而不能打開,又或者打開亦而過熟。亦因為玫瑰的一車車由國內而來到香港,有一天時間是只用冰瓶保持冷凍,因為溫度一提升,花就催開,再雪藏不能由復未開的樣子了。

美玫就好一點,因為空運,供應錬快,特性亦開得慢,雪藏一段時間使用都沒有大問題。夏天,送美玫好一點,當然價錢不同亦雖要早一點預訂啦!

2)百合花是夏天寵兒,花期長又耐看,香氣滿溢。近年,百合花亦多了不同的品種,亦有荷蘭品種的供應,不再是粉紅或就是白色百合,可以看不同的顏色班紋,一定不老套!炎夏不用放太多水,因為會很快開,用高身lily vase, 如果是casablanca亦要加竹枝扶直。

3)蕙蘭花不用雪藏,有冷氣的地方就可以保持新鮮,可以放一星期才凋謝。此外,同樣是蘭花的品種,胡姖花和萬代蘭供應日漸增加,不愛蕙蘭的外形,可以嘗試這些新品種,配搭小巧的花瓶做擺設。蝴蝶蘭盆栽亦十分普及,近年流行迷你品種,亦有高身的品種,不愁沒選擇!

4) 夏天的綉球,要有大量的水,荷蘭的綉球又比國內的耐看,價錢是一貴一點。

5)鬱金香遇熱會開咀,好以太易弄殘,要很小心。夏天要購買剛運到的鬱金香,不會太熟的。馬啼蘭不會開,可以放一個星期,亦是不錯的選擇。


買花好講經驗,打理花亦要有心思和耐性,難怪男仕愛以鮮花攻勢打動芳心啦!女仕收到不同的鮮花,亦會變為溫柔可愛的淑女吧!

Care Instructions 鮮花保養問題

Flowers makes you happy! Don't be upset when they are dying several days later. The flowers are begin to getting older and older everyday when they have been cut away from soil.

Flowers that sells in Hong Kong will usually get to fully open very quickly in the hot summer, and they die quickly, or otherwise they suffer dehydration, drinking not enough water, before they are fully blossom.

General Rules,

"Carefully remove the packaging and insert your flower to vase immediately upon recieve!!!" (otherwise they will die in the packaging.)

1) Use flower food
2) Replace with clean waters frequently
3) take out the flower stems when it dies
4) Avoid heat and temperature, stay in cool place
5) Use a clean vase that filled with 2/3 of waters

When the flowers show any sign of not absorbing enough water,

1)bent neck for roses, gerbera,
2)soft petal for hydrangea
3)soft neck for tulips

Wrap it with paper and drop it to a bucket of water of 2/3 length, for 2-3 hours, see if the flowers got retrieve, re-cut the stems( with a sharp knife, slant cut) when necessary. Remove some of the leaves on the roses stems will be possible to stop water losing out to the air.

Remember, if you really want something can extend a longer period of time, always ask the florist for guidance. They will be happy to let you know which flowers are in seasons.

---------------------------------------
Some more details care for florist: (it may has been taken care before we sold)
(source: http://www.flowercouncil.org )

Roses
1) Buy when the bud is fully grown and ‘loose’.
2) Remove the lower leaves.
3) Use clean vases and fresh water containing cut flower food.
4) Avoid smoke, fruit and exhaust fumes (sources of ethylene).
5) Give the customer an adequate supply of cut flower food.

Hydrangea
1) A clean vase and fresh water are essential.
2) Cut a piece off the stems and remove as many leaves as possible.
3) Cut shrub food will extend the vase life considerably, up to a maximum of two weeks. 4) Avoid draughts as this will cause the flowers to droop.


Helianthus/ Sunflowers
1) Cut a good piece off the stems, remove as much foliage as possible and stand in cold water containing special food for cut shrubs.
2) Never leave without water. Check the water level regularly because this flower is very thirsty.
3) Avoid crowding the flowers to avoid damage.

Gerbera
1) Put the flowers in water immediately to allow the stems to absorb plenty of water. 2) The water should be shallow as the flowers could otherwise be contaminated.
3) Cut flower food inhibits bacterial contamination.
4) Don't let any water droplets on the flower petals.

Amaryllis / Hippeastrum
1) Do not store Hippeastrum too cold (<5°C) as the trumpets will discolour.
2) Cut the stems off straight and stand the flowers in fresh water containing food for bulbous flowers.
3) A dark vase will stop the stems from turning red and curling back.
4) Push a stick into the flower stem to keep it straight.

Lily
1) At temperatures below 2°C the bud can turn brown.
2) Stand the flowers in water containing cut flower food, preferably special food for lilies.
3) Remove any pollen from clothing with the aid of a brush or adhesive tape or hang out in the sun for several hours.
4) Do not try to remove the stains with water. The flowers can be strongly scented.

Paeonia (Peony)
1) Cut a piece off the stems and put the flowers in fresh water with cut flower food.
2) Higher temperatures will speed up flowering, so Paeonia should be kept in a cool spot.
3) If the flowers are to open well the buds must be moistened regularly using a plant spray.

Zantedeschia (Calla Lily)
1) Cut a piece off the stems and stand in fresh water.
2)The stem ends can be stopped from curling back by wrapping them with adhesive tape or using a dark vase.
3)Allow the flowers to drink their fill if they are to be used with Oasis foam as it is difficult for them to absorb water from the foam.

Tulipa
1) A tulip bud that is fully grown and showing colour will develop best in the vase.
2) Drooping tulips can be revived by cutting a piece off the stems, wrapping them in paper and standing them in fresh water in a cool spot.
3) Remember that tulips continue to grow in the vase, re-cut when necessary.

開花店最「Big Fun」問題?



開花店最「Big Fun」問題?

1。我用D花好平呀,花墟二十蚊一札,點解要收七百幾呀?
好以小學生問題,我都好想問點解D樓點會幾千蚊呎,水泥做之嗎?我無解,有人喜歡住好D,住高級D。

2。好簡單的花球,我自己識整呀,點解咁貴呀?
DIY花球,同花店做的,是兩回事呀,問題多此一舉。如果你是花藝高手,大日子就是你一展所長的日子啦,何必找花店做呢!

3。我用好少花,幾千蚊可以做佈置呀?
用少花不等於平,自己姊妹DIY或餐廳staff做即可,少了運費,人力等等開支。少過十札或過千元花材,其實功夫很少,不用假手於人。不同公司有不同的Cost structure,min. price 有不同因數。以為花很便宜,就以為人力等功夫不值一錢,簡直天真。少花,就要用貴而精緻的,多花,可以便宜和大量。其實,花多做佈置手功不多,是但插可以,花少,做主題,都要有Design skill, 不可假手於人啊!

遇上這些問題,好難開口答,學阿Sa話:真是Big Fun!!!

「 逆 向 選 擇 」? 




如果為了多一點訂單而降低資素,將貨就價,留下的可能是對我們沒有信心的顧客,可能使做到的生意不會回頭邦襯,賺了的錢亦被消掉,甚至更不討好消費者。對自己有信心的,不減反加,對越來越高要求的客人,是一種保證。

不設套包是為了用更理想的資源,做更好的花藝,不是為了消費者的荷包著想嗎? 
你有權去選用價錢貴的花材,用小量的空間佈置。你亦用大量的混合便宜的花材,做獨特的色系,不愁沒有價錢的選擇。套包的價錢如何定,預付的方式有甚麼保証?以前你大概不知的,海嘯下現形。

你會「逆向選擇」嗎?

Wedding flowers Trends 花球,場地設計趨勢



Be the Drama queen on your Big day!

1) Break the rule. Get yourself a super-sized if you a petite girl, a mini chic style if you are the tall bride. A super-size bouquet composite with hydrangea, peony and roses with big volume of flowers. A mini chic style with flowers set on wire or set on the flower foam handle, feeling feather light and small.

2) Color first! Consider yourself with a minimum budget. Only get yourself one kind of flowers and shade to get a interesting result. The bridesmaid with different color of dresses, so as their bouquets. No need everyone on the same uniform now. It is ok for everyone has their own style now!

e.g tulips, calla lily, roses go with a single bunch without hurting your budget. Get yourself and bridesmaids different special colors!



3) Flowers arrangement in chic and small ways. No need to have a big flowers show, roses bed again! It costs less budget if you need only use a few magical arrangements to catch the eyesight. Less flowers used at your ballroom but get a cosy home wedding party instead.
