What flowers to donate

Live flowers require some care and knowledge, but are longer than cut flowers and the longer we can enjoy the colors, scent and decoration it provides to the space. Cut flowers can be dried, thus extending his life and the memory he carries with him as a message. Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion and do not be afraid to choose flowers.
