Flowers can brighten up someone’s day on any occasion. They can express many different emotions without the need of any words or expressions. They can tell someone special that you love them, wish someone a speedy recovery, send your condolences, or let someone know that you’re sorry. They can also embellish your wedding day or other occasions.
Malta’s warm climate aids the growth of many beautiful flowers such as Alstroemeria, which is available all year round and comes in wide variety of colours. Gerbera also grow all year round and come in a spectacular range or colours, from white to Italian Pink.
The Iris grows locally from December to April while the Tulips grow from December to March. Other locally grown flowers include Lilium, Lisianthus and Carnations.
Many florists, such as Flower Power Malta, also offer many imported flowers and usually will take specific orders on demand.
