Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Blanche Durham
Any flower you choose will delight the person you send it to. Wondering how much it will cost to send your loving gift? If youre on a tight budget and cant spend a lot no worries! You can still get a nice bouquet of Valentines Day flowers for under $30. For example a very beautiful bright and sunny flower arrangement selection I recently saw consisted of yellow daisy chrysanthemums purple asters hot pink and orange carnations and more. These delicate beauties are delivered in a miniature ginger vase adorned with a plaid yellow ribbon. The arrangement and vase measures approximately 9" wide by 12" high. Thats a lot of Valentines flowers for the price! Maybe youre looking for something that will really show how much you love that special person and price is not an issue. Well then you can spend $175.00 $200.00 or even more.
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.
On a budget? Theres more to Valentines flowers than just roses. Consider a fresh mixed bouquet in pinks and reds a colorful Spring assortment a soft pastel cluster of blossoms or a simple vase of tulips. Almost anything is appropriate for Valentines and mixed fresh flowers are often a better value than roses in February simply due to supply and demand. Arranging Delivery? If youre sending flowers to the workplace consider delivery relatively early in the week. Your flowers will be enjoyed more before the weekend and the recipient will be the envy of co-workers still waiting for their gifts. If youre planning a date on Valentines weekend sending flowers early can also be a great way to set the tone and let your Valentine know youre looking forward to the time together.
