Chrysanthemum's the word

TWEED flower growers are busy cutting for one of the busiest days of the year tomorrow.

Crystal Creek Flowers owner Janelle Wright said chrysanthemums were the biggest sellers on Mother's Day.

"We planted in the second week of January to have the flowers ready."

Mrs Wright sells a lot of chrysanthemums but her favourite flower is the rose, although the flower farmer does not grow any on the two-acre property.

"We offer about 17 varieties of flowers and we trial new ones each year," she said.

"The hardest for us to grow are the lilies."

Many Tweed residents would have  seen Mrs Wright's flower shop on the roadside of Tweed Valley Way.
