Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Eve Callahan
Make sure that you send a small gift along as well when you send Valentines flowers to a man. Most men love receiving chocolate or gourmet cookies and will be completely bowled over by the flowers and the gifts. Dont hesitate over what to give the man in your life this Valentines Day. Gender barriers are blurring very fast and flowers send men the same message as they have been sending women for centuries. The best Valentines flowers for him are those that will please him. Im talking about the person you love deeply. There can be several men you love in your life and this is to say that they can be your relatives friends and even a lover. It is vital for you to know how to separate the needs of men in your life. This is because they all need different things and when it comes to Valentine flowers you will discover that they are different.
If you cant find any flower food or dont have any handy all you need is a teaspoon of sugar a teaspoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of bleach dissolved in half a liter of water to help keep your flowers fresh. Flowers dont like direct sunlight or draughts and at night they like to be kept cool so keep them in a cool sheltered place. You should keep them away from anything that gives off heat like the TV microwave or indoor heating appliances (maybe in summer this wont be such a problem). If you have a flower arrangement you wont have to worry about rearranging the flowers as the work has been done for you. If you dont have an arrangement make sure you cut off approximately an inch off each stem at an angle before arranging them.
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.
