Valentines Flowers / January 13, 2019 / Shawn Mcgee
Before choosing what you will send you should consider these aspects carefully. The next step to send Valentines flowers or to purchase Valentines flowers is to plan the timing of the flowers delivery. If you plant to take your Valentines Day Date out to dinner then you might want to consider having a flower bouquet delivered to her door before the date or you could choose to have the restaurant present the flowers to her over dinner. Next do your research! Certain types of flowers have different symbolic meanings. For example it is a commonly known fact that roses are symbols of passion and love. However did you know that the use of ivy in a bouquet symbolizes fidelity and marriage? It will impress your date or partner if you are able to tell her the symbolic meaning behind your presentation.
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.
With all this in mind your flowers should remain fresh for longer but remember flowers are just like us. They come in all shapes and sizes and some will outlast the others. Its just a fact of life. Whether you choose to send Valentines flowers or present your beloved with Valentines flowers in person flowers are a wonderful method of expressing ones feelings. First you will need to decide if you want to send a single flower a bouquet or a flowering plant. Each type of presentation has its own special meaning. For example a flowering plant will provide a more lasting permanence as a reminder of your love for the recipient. However if the intended recipient does not have the time or patience to care for a plant then a bouquet may be a more appropriate gift.
