Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
You can be sure that your gift of flowers for Valentines Day will be a complete surprise and a welcome one at that. You have to send Valentines flowers to a man with a lot of care especially if they are being delivered to his office. He might feel a little silly if a giant arrangement of red roses arrived at his desk mush to the amusement of his co-workers. You should therefore opt for a neutral looking arrangement of flowers that look masculine and not delicate. This is made possible by carefully selecting the color and type of flowers you use. For instance you could present him with a beautiful arrangement of orchids. They come in a variety of colors including purple and chocolate. There is even an orchid that is speckled with orange and brown. Sunflowers and birds of paradise are two popular flowers for gifting to men.
In fact flowers are by far the most popular romantic gift along with chocolate for this special day celebrated by those in love. But you dont want to wait until the last minute to purchase them. Prices go sky high the day before Valentines Day so get your order in early. What kind of flowers should you give? Choosing the right flower can be a little frustrating but dont despair! Here are some helpful suggestions. Some people believe that roses are the only flower that will do as Valentines flowers. Roses are the ultimate romantic flower. No flower says "I love you!" the way a rose does. For that reason they are the most popular flower for that special day. Red roses are the most traditional Valentines flower but pink white and yellow are also given. Maybe youre thinking of the right flower to give to someone who is glamorous.
Make sure this cut is at an angle as this helps the flowers access the water better than if the stems were standing on the bottom of the vase. When cutting the stems never break them off with your hands or flatten them as this will also shorten the flower life. Once this is done all you have to do is tend to your flowers as you would your garden or any living thing for that matter! Regularly top up the vase with clean water. You should make sure the leaves are never covered with water as they will only contaminate the water. The leaves will rot and breed bacteria thus decreasing the longevity of the cut flowers. You should also keep your flowers away from fruit. You cant smell it but fruit gives off ethylene gas which affects the quality of the flowers life.
