CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Florists across the country and here in the Tri-State are busy preparing for Mother’s Day.

John Clark at Benken Florist Home & Garden Center in Cincinnati says some gift ideas include hanging baskets, hydrangeas, seasonal combo pots and mixed baskets.

“Give mom a house plant. You also have gift cards. Roses, endless summer hydrangeas, those will come back every year,” Clark said.

He also has some advice for plant maintenance.

Clark suggests you always trim off dead flowers to maintain the health of your plants and don’t be afraid to pinch them back as it will help them branch out.

He also reminds plant owners to always fertilize.

Benken Florist Home & Garden Center has a special event at its 38-acre site coming up Saturday called Mimosas with Mom from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
