Flowers wilt, candles burn out, and chocolates never last long anyway. Plants, however, is a longer-lasting sign of love and care. Plants as a gift work well for grandma or grandpa, hospital visits, birthdays, anniversaries or just an I-thought-this-will-brighten-your-day gift. Say thank you, I love you or thinking of you with Flowers On Pollen. We are a local florist who offers a wide range of plants, posies, arrangements and gifts for every occasion – delivery in Thames daily, frequently also servicing outlying areas. We are the largest florist in the peninsula and offer an extensive range of local flowers.
Sharing a plant person’s admiration for their little (or big!) community of plants is a sign you care. Whether it's houseplants, little clippings they found next to the road or grown from seed–their love extends far and wide, for all things leafy and green. We share ideas of houseplants here:
A fiddle leaf fig is always a winner. With its bright green leaves, it prefers a sunny yet stable environment.
Commonly known as a snake plant, but also called Saint George's sword, mother-in-law's tongue or viper's bowstring hemp, this evergreen plant can survive in sunny or dark corners of the home. When you gift a plant of the indestructible variety, your friends can learn even more about it.
The ‘Swiss cheese plant’ or Monstera Deliciosa gets its name from the natural leaf holes that appear to optimise sunlight.
A Lady Palm prefers indirect sunlight and, unlike other palms, are easy to care for. A string of pearls is ideal for the nightstand or bookshelf as it will trail down, and it flourishes in a bright space with indirect sunlight.
A peace lily and English ivy are two other favourites. A peace lily loves water and, with enough light, will flower throughout the year. English ivy is a lovely climbing plant suited to start an urban garden wall.
A potted plant is handy and a lovely gift because it can brighten a home, a dressing table, a veranda or a workspace. Pot plant delivery is easy with Flowers On Pollen. Here we share guidelines on plants best suited to pots:
Herbs are suitable for pots: basil, mint, parsley, and coriander work well. If your nearest and dearest love their green juice, spinach also works well in a container.
Pelargonium and geraniums can add lively colour to any space. Both can survive in hot, dry positions.
Bougainvillaea is another hardy plant with brightly coloured flowers in spring, and these come in white, pink and orange. A dwarf plant is available if you'd like to test the waters first, and it will flourish in the sunny corners of your balcony.
What started as a new venture to fill a gap in the market and our time; is now our pride and joy. Flowers On Pollen is a locally owned and operated florist in the Coromandel Peninsula, and we flourish on our passion for flowers. We are the largest florist in the wider community and serve Thames, Tairua, Whangamata, Whitianga and Pauanui.
We happily and proudly provide a diverse range of local flowers and offer plants, posies and bouquets delivered to your doorstep. In addition, we offer a range of gifts you can add to your arrangement: these include garden, home and body care products, candles and yummy snacks. Gift cards are also available.
