Mother’s Day floral gift ideas from the Garden Guy

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14, and the Garden Guy, Mike O’Rourke, has some floral gift ideas for mom that will have some staying power.

He suggests getting a flower or plant that will last an entire season as opposed to a cut flower that may only last a few days.

Some examples include New Guinea Impatiens, Geraniums, and Cascading Petunias. He notes it is important to pass along to mom how to properly care for a particular plant with information like how much sunlight it needs and when and how often it should be watered.
