What do Mothers want for Mother's day?

I asked16 Mothers of varying ages and occupations what flowers they would most like toreceive on Mothers Day. And here are the results:

Karen C47RetiredLilies
Nicola T 25NurseryNursePastelRoses
MarionF53HomemakerSunflower(best single flower)MixedBouquet with plenty of greenery (best bouquet to receive)
ChristineHAncient(early 40's)CharteredSurveyor (estates manager)Freesiasand Roses *NOTEin the graph below I have given each flower ½ a place each!
ChristineJ60(However age doesn’t matter unless you’re a cheese!!)Officemanager, but soon to be retired!!!Sweetpea – but alas these are not in season on Mother’s Day Anotherfavourite used to be those paper flowers the children made in class andbrought home to mum from school
AlexisB52 SecretaryDaffodils
Corrin R53NHSSecretaryLilies
SheilaO-W69RetiredRosesNot keen on lilies
Marie C48Secretary - Systems OperatorSunflowers
Maureen M
VictoriaF26SeniorSecretaryRoses(abouquet of pinks and creams)

A break down of the results.


So, despite carnations being the traditional Mothers Day Flower – they did not featureonce! And the best seller (see previous blog entry) from last year – the rose – came a very close second to the Lilly!

Also... keep your eyes open because I will be asking men what they think their Mothers would most like to receive on Mother's Day – and we shall see how the results compare!
