Flowers banned in some hospitals and more are following.
Hospitals across Australia are slowly banning flowers only because they pose a health risk to patients.
Hospital officials claim that harmful bacteria can grow in the water and spreads germs among patients if knocked over.
They feel that fruit hampers and fruit baskets are a better option than sending flowers to the hospital. We of course have to agree, and the patient receives the added benefit of nutrients found in the fruit.
More hospitals are now making their wards a “flower free zone”
Officials have said that other gifts such as fruit is still welcome at the hospital.
So if you are looking for a gift for somebody in hospital to wish them congratulations or get well, send the gift of a fruit basket or fruit hamper.

Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia.
Her campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905, the year her beloved mother, Ann Reeves Jarvis, died. Anna’s mission was to honor her own mother by continuing work she started and to set aside a day to honor mothers, “the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world”. Anna’s mother, Ann Jarvis, was a peace activist who cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War and created Mother’s Day Work Clubs to address public health issues.
Mother’s Day falls on the following days:
Australia – 2nd Sunday in May
Canada – 2nd Sunday in May
United States – 2nd Sunday in May
United Kingdom – Fourth Sunday in Lent
