Did you know....
The seeds of the Cotton Plant are planted in the Spring and harvested in the Autumn. It takes about five to six months for the plant to mature and the bolls to open for harvesting.
There is no wastage when it comes to Cotton - the fiber is the primary reason for growing cotton, but the seeds are used for animal feed and human use (cottonseed oil). The plant stalks are tilled back in the soil after harvesting.
Many of our Artificial Flowers have cotton components - such a versatile resource!
