Artificial plants and flowers - often referred to as 'silks' - are now as popular as ever with individuals and companies wanting realistic eye-catching natural displays that require very little maintenance yet remain looking in their prime all year round.
As well as adding a splash of colour to places where sunlight is limited and live plants would perish, fake plants are a clean and low-maintenance alternative to living foliage.
Regardless of whether you're looking for something in a glass vase, a garland or simply a loose stem, with a choice of gorgeous coloured silk flowers and printed leaves our range of high quality flowering plants are so lifelike that observers would be hard-pressed to distinguish them from their real counterparts.
Detailed with intricately printed silk multi-sized leaves and woody-looking realistic stems, Artificial Garlands are a fantastic way of bringing internal displays to life. Whether used to accentuate the frames of pictures or mirrors, draped around doorways or used as part of a shop display, Artificial Garlands are so versatile the options are as broad as your imagination will allow.
With differing sized palmate-shaped leaves printed with a realistic vein-effect pattern the UV Resistant Artificial Mini Holland Ivy Garland is a beautifully life-like flowerless green garland.
To add to the realism, theUV Resistant Artificial Mini English Ivy Garland also has intertwining brown ribbed stems, differing coloured leaf stalks and occasional tendrils.
Care and Maintenance
As this garland is UV protected it can withstand direct sunlight, therefore is suitable for indoor or outdoor use without risk of fading.
To help keep your faux flowers looking vibrant and in peak condition it is a good idea to clean them about once a month as dust and dirt can settle in the small crevices and will dull down the look of your silk.
Although some people suggest soapy water for cleaning fake leaves and petals we find that doing so accelerates fading and affects the rigidity of the leaves which could make them lose their shape or disintegrate.
Therefore we recommend you simply take a cheap clean paintbrush with soft bristles and dust each leaf, petal and flower head, ideally from the centre of the plant outwards. (Whenever possible we suggest you clean your flowers outdoors as the build-up of dirt may be greater than you realise!)
