The winter season often brings with it a longing for the lush, vibrant hues of nature, and what better way to satisfy that yearning than by inviting the verdant beauty of indoor plants into your home? Winter house plants do not just fill a decorative niche but come with a bundle of benefits. In this post, we will explore these advantages and introduce you to some stunning winter wonders that are easy to care for and can transform your interior spaces.   SPECIAL DISCOUNT OFFERS - USE ON MAIN WEBSITE           Low Light Requirement Winter is synonymous with shorter days and diminished light, but did you know there are house plants that actually flourish in these conditions? Plants like the peace lily, snake plant, and pothos, have adapted to survive in low light and even appreciate the winter's subdued illumination. This makes them the perfect companions for spaces that lack the summer's abundant sunlight, ensuring greenery is still a part of your home's winter wardrobe.

They absorb common household toxins, providing a breath of fresh air inside when it’s too chilly to venture outside. Integrating these plants into your space doesn't just elevate oxygen levels but also helps to remove pollutants that are prevalently trapped indoors during winter. Aesthetic Value Aesthetics play a significant role in choosing house plants, and winter varieties offer a stunning array of options to enhance your décor. From the lush, deep greens of ferns to the vivid blooms of Christmas cactus, [...]

Bussey's Florist One major responsibility of Professional Floral Designers is to ensure their customer's events are a big success. Whether it is an intimate gathering or a grand affair, they will set up the best floral design to compliment your vision and budget. Our team of compassionate and detail minded designers use fresh farm grown flowers and their creative skills to produce the most stunning flower arrangements in the industry.   SPECIAL DISCOUNT OFFERS - USE ON MAIN WEBSITE         Floral Design Floral design is a creative art form that uses floral materials to produce artistic designs. Floral designers use a variety of mediums, including fresh and dried flowers, foliage, fruits and vegetables as well as other products such as bamboo stalks, grasses or feathers. They often work with an arranger or florist to create finished pieces for customers in the wedding industry or for retail sale at florists' shops. Floral design can be used in the making of floral arrangements (such as bouquets), corsages/boutonnieres and other creations such as wreaths or centerpieces. The term "floral designer" may also refer more specifically to people who create custom-made wedding bouquets on behalf of clients who are getting married at their own homes rather than having them done professionally by a florist. A person who designs floral arrangements but does not work with live plants (i.e., someone who uses only dried materials) would not normally be considered a "florist". Floral designers are often trained at trade schools or colleges and may be certified by the American Institute of Floral Designers. Floral designers can also be involved with the design of floral decorations for interiors, such as furniture or walls. Floral design is often used in wedding planning as well as other [...]
