New British plant grower: Double H

After a hopefully successful British Flowers Week, we wanted to reward you by adding a new plant grower to the Pre-order. Meet British plant grower Double H Nurseries! Read on and learn more about Double H’s three main crops: Phalaenopsis Orchids, pot Roses and Chrysanthemums.

Double H Nurseries

Double H’s assortment

We’re glad to inform you that all three of Double H’s main crops are available through the buying platform as we speak.

  • British Orchids* – Including sleeved Phalaenopsis (9 & 12cm). The wraps of these plants feature a back panel of information for the customer on care/top tips for their orchids. Handy, isn’t it?
  • British pot Rose – Double H specialises in large-headed British Rose varieties (10.5cm). One of the Rose lines will feature a  gift cone and wrap, designed specifically for us. Check it out!
  • British Chrysanthemum – Alongside their normal (14cm) British Chrysanthemum, Double H will also offer a special gift variant: lightly glittered gift wrapped Chrysanthemums.

*Double H’s orchids often go by the label ‘Love orchids‘, which is a brand promoted by Double H.
Their aim is to raise awareness of orchids and orchid care.

Plant care tips

We asked Double H to sum up the most important care tips on each of the three plants. That way, you can supply your customers with the right tips to enjoy their freshly bought plants to the fullest!

Orchids

  • Place in a bright window out of direct sunlight and not above a radiator
  • Water weekly either by running under a tap or soaking in a sink of water for a few minutes
    Or add a few ice cubes to the surface of the bark weekly – avoid contact with the leaves!
  • Never leave standing in excess water as this will rot the roots
  • Well-watered plants have plump green roots with reddish-green tips

Pot Roses

  • Lots of light and lots of water, remove dead flowers
  • Can be planted in the garden after flowering has stopped
  • Naturally flowers in the summer

Chrysanthemum

  • Lots of light and lots of water, remove dead flowers
  • Can be planted in the garden after flowering has stopped
  • Naturally flowers in the autumn
