On this page, you will find more information on the various plants that we grow, along with an explanation of the symbols that you will find on the label or on the sleeve.
The Schlumbergera, also known in Brazil as Flor de Maio (May flower). This is actually a succulent, but a blooming succulent. The Schlumbergera blooms when the days are short and has lovely red, white, prink or orange blossoms. They originally come from Brazil, where they bloom very modestly on tree trunks. If you take good care of the Schlumbergera, the plant can continue to bloom for years. The plant that never dies!
A robust potcarnation that you can enjoy for a long time, because this plant blooms from May to October. The name Dianthus is derived from two words: the Greek word Dios (itself derived from ‘Zeus’) and Athos (‘flower’) and means ‘god flower’ or ‘divine flower’. This plant is suitable for a border, but also looks lovely in a pot on a patio or balcony. The fragrant Dianthus prefers to be placed in the garden in a sunny and dry place. The more sun, the richer the flower blooms.
Although this richly flowering, colourful plant loves full sun, it can also tolerate bright shade. If you make sure the soil is kept moist, then it will surprise you over and over again with new blooms. The dead flowers fall off by themselves, making it an easy plant to care for.
This small, compact growing plant is used mainly as a houseplant, but in the summer, with adequate heat, the plant also does fine outdoors on the patio or in pots and flower boxes. Exacum, also known as ‘Persian violet’, originated in Socotra, an island just below Yemen. What is surprising about this plant is that it has a wonderfully fragrant flower that makes people happy!
This marguerite daisy is another lovely spring bloomer. It’s a plant that loves the sun, so full sun won’t be a problem at all. Do make sure though that the soil remains moist, so that the plant doesn’t dry out. If you remove the dead flowers, the plant will develop rich new blossoms and you’ll enjoy its beautiful flowers in your garden all summer long.
You’d never know that the Sapphire is related to the Affine. It seems like a totally different plant. But its big, bright blue flowers make it a real eye-catcher. It’s been named after that precious stone, the sapphire, for good reason. This plant loves the sun and can be placed both indoors and outdoors.
This spring bloomer has blue flowers with a delicious vanilla scent. It’s also a favourite of butterflies, which will flock to your garden and provide extra colour. If you take good care of this plant by keeping the soil moist and ensure that it doesn’t get too much direct sunlight, you’ll enjoy rich blossoms for months.
