For those who lack a gardener's green thumb, this can pose a bit of a problem with multiple trips to the flower market straining on the wallet. It's not surprising that many people have opted to go synthetic. Fake flowers have long been branded the ultimate design no-no, however, bogus blooms have come a long way in recent years with many looking as real as their organic cousins.
