Gerbera’s in bloom

Gerbera in bloom
 
 
 
My favorite flower is the Gerbera, this one I  have grown on my kitchen window. I think they are such a pretty flower and they come in many colors. It’s a very popular plant and can be used as a decorative plant for the garden or grown for cut flowers. They are often used for weddings as centre pieces and bridal bouquets due to the many colors in their species. They are easily cared for whether grown outside or in. Be careful not to grow them outside while there is still a risk of frost, they prefer milder to hotter temperatures.
 
Gerbera’s really love hotter temperatures and so grow to their maximum potential, therefore growing in full sunlight is a great idea! Always remove dead flowers to encourage flower growth.
 
 
I love this quote from Jim Carrey on Twitter, so I thought I would share: 
 
Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up, and turn towards the light and that makes them beautiful ~ Jim Carrey
 
 
I think this quote is perfect for the Gerbera, they just amaze me how quickly they grow. The plant I have had in my kitchen window has been producing blooms since last July and with a little tlc it keeps giving back beautiful flowers. 
 
 
There is something about having flowers in the kitchen that brings a smile to my face. They really do cheer you up. 
 
Are you a fan of gerbera’s? Which one is your favourite colour?
