Decorate
Your Easter With Blooming Beauty

Easter is April 1, and
amidst the bunnies, baby chicks and chocolate candies, bright and colorful
blooms make a beautiful addition to both your Easter décor and your holiday
gifting! Some of our favorite blooming plants include Bachman’s-grown tulips,
daffodils and hyacinth, as well as cyclamen, azaleas, hydrangea, and of course,
Easter lilies. Each one brings a touch of the garden indoors and introduces a
burst of spring color into your celebrations.

Whether you’re
welcoming the season with a color palette that’s bold and brilliant or sweet
and soft, blooming plants offer a range of hues — from vivid magenta to muted
blue — that will complement your décor. They also make a fresh addition to your
family’s Easter baskets or a beautiful gift for spreading springtime cheer to
friends and neighbors.

To help your blooming
plants live long past your Easter celebrations, proper care is essential. Start
by choosing the best quality plant available. In addition to having a full
shape and healthy foliage, your blooming plant should have some flowers open
and an abundance of developing buds.

Then, find a cozy
place for your plant to enjoy plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Since water,
temperature and fertilizer needs will vary depending on variety, we recommend
browsing the care sheet for your chosen plant at Bachmans.com.

If you’re enjoying the
quintessential plant of the season — Easter lilies — take extra care to help
them look their best. Begin by removing the yellow anthers as the flowers start
to open. This keeps the petals white and makes the lily last longer. Keep your
Easter lily in an area where the temperature is a cool 60 to 65 degrees and
there’s daytime light, but no direct sunlight. And lastly, ensure the soil
stays moist as long as your lily is flowering. Follow these simple steps and
you’ll enjoy these fragrant flowers long through spring. For more tips, read
our Easter lily care sheet online.

Happy Easter from
Bachman’s!
