Did you know that the name Chrysanthemum comes from two Greek words ” Chrysos meaning gold and ”anthos” meaning flower?
The genus chrysanthemum is a large one, having both ornamental and also economic value. These flowers vary greatly in form, size and colour and can be grown in many climates.
The origin of the chrysanthemum is actually Asia and the native habitat of the plants is Northern China,Mongolia,Korea and later Japan.
Chrysanthemum buds should open in the vase if a floral preservative is used. Its best to buy chrysanthemum’s where at least half the flowers are open. NEVER NEVER smash,crush or split the stems of Chrysanthemums or other woody stem flowers such as Proteas or Roses.This damages the stems and hinders the water uptake, meaning the flowers will wilt more quickly, keep them out of draughts and sunlight.

Mercy Orphanage, in Senapati, Manipur, India was opened by retired East Gosford school teacher Glenda Ikundi in 2008, with 5 children. Today the Orphanage has grown to 20 children who are aged between 5 and 14 years. These children have lost the support of their parents due to poverty and drug addiction.
The Orphanage is managed by a local husband and wife team, Khole and Danai Taoh who receive frequent visits from Glenda. Colleen McLean is also a lifelong contributor to the Orphanage and keeps everyone up to date with newsletters. 100% of donations go directly to the Orphanage’s needs, there are no administrative costs.
In April 2013 the new girls’ dormitory was opened, and now they are currently raising money for a boys’ dormitory. There are also ongoing cost of $AUD27 per child per month. Mercy Orphanage operates a farm which partially provides for the children’s food requirements. The Orphanage also funds village children’s education and local business opportunities.
We were eager to make sure that we support this cause for the children of Manipur, India and help them achieve the goal of a boys’ dormitory for the Mercy Orphanage.
