A long-lasting gift idea....


Why default to an ordinary gift?  Give a unique, stand-out gift for the holidays and impress friends, hosts, clients and coworkers.  Our present of choice?  Orchids!  Here are a few great reasons to ditch that poinsettia and fall in love with orchids.

            1.   Orchids love long visits.  Cut flowers only last for a few days, but orchids stay alive and beautiful for at least three months.

            2.   Orchids are easy going.  These guests only require a little sunlight and 1/2 cup of water every 7-10 days.  No other maintenance is required to keep them happy and healthy.

            3.   Orchids are naturally beautiful.  Orchids are an elegant and exotic alternative to traditional houseplants.  They come in a wide variety of colors, ranging from white to purple to yellow.  Some even have artistic stripes or spots!

            4.   Orchids have great fashion sense.  Because orchids don't require a lot of soil or water, they can be placed in all different kinds of chic containers.  Style them up to match any room in the house.


Come to Calvert's greenhouse to see our selection of orchids, living trees, and other fresh holiday cheer.  It is always fun to visit the Calverts oasis and our greenhouse experts will help you find the perfect plant for any occasion.                                  Also, check out our Pinterest page for more of our favorite orchid inspirations.
