On the first day of spring, Wednesday, March 20, English Gardens will give away free bunches of daffodils. All six English Gardens locations will give away these fresh-cut flowers. While supplies last, limit one per customer.
Symbolizing new beginnings, the Daffodil is synonymous with spring. Ancient lore suggests the Daffodil is not only the sign of winter’s end but a symbol of future prosperity. In China, if a Daffodil bulb is forced to bloom during the New Year, it will bring good luck to your home. Bring happiness and good fortune home with you on Wednesday, March 20!
“We want to celebrate this new season and brighten everyone's day with fresh-cut flowers," says John Darin, English Gardens President.
How to Care for Your Fresh-Cut Daffodils
- Place in a clean vase filled halfway with fresh, room-temperature water.
- Hold the Daffodils next to your vase to gauge how much stem to trim.
- Using a sharp knife, cut the stems at a 45-degree angle. This allows for better water absorption.
- Add cut-flower food. Frequent re-cutting of the stems helps prolong the life of your Daffodils.
