Delicate yet beautifully timeless carnation flower, one of the world’s oldest cultivated flowers, and the second most popular flower after roses. It is believed to have been around since ancient times with numerous myths and history behind it.
The carnation flower symbolises love, captivation and distinction. However, each colour of the carnation has its own special meaning, especially in different parts of the world.
The carnation is the January birthday flower and available all year round.
When you receive or get home with your Alstroemeria stems, trim the stems on an angle and place the stems in fresh water. Alstroemeria flowers love a little light, but not too much. The best place for them is on a table near a windlow, somewhere with a little morning sun and a shade later in the day.
Avoid any window sills, the sunshine through the glass will dehydrate your flowers and make them fade faster than they should!
