About the Aster
Asters are also called Starworts, Michaelmas Daisies, or Frost Flowers.
Asters are found chiefly in North America, with some species extending
into South America; others are distributed throughout Europe and Asia.
The word Aster is of Greek derivation and refers to the Starlike flowers
that can be white, red, pink, purple, lavender and blue, mostly
with yellow centres.
Asters should be planted in moist well-drained soil in full sun
Plant Asters at least 18 inches apart so that the plants do not form
broad bushy clumps.
Mature clumps should be divided every 3-4 years in the early Spring,
or late Autumn after the flowering has finished.
Asters need regular watering at their roots.
Many Aster varieties fail to survive the Winter if kept to moist.
Pruning tends to delay flowering by only a few days but
produces a much prettier plant.
(known as the birthstone of September)
The best-known Sapphires are the rich blue variety,
but they actually come in every colour of the rainbow
The word sapphire comes from the Latin "sapphiru" which means blue.
Birthday wishes are sent to you hoping today is special in everything you do.
