Valentines Flowers / January 13, 2019 / Lauri Cooke
Let us start with your relatives for example your father. Your father needs to feel special on that day of love and you can decide to find good flowers for him. Let me first state that men adore flowers just like women men are inspired by beautiful flowers that are able to engage all senses in this regard. Your father will have something different that he likes when it comes to flowers. For example he might be a fan of so many flowers and he might also love just a certain kind. It is very thoughtful to look for the favorite Valentines flowers for him and have it as a part of the theme. Valentines flowers for him do not have to be very elaborate. Keep it simple and this will do the trick. This will also apply for men you have a platonic relationship with.
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.
Stay away from pastel shades when selecting flowers to send your boyfriend or husband. Even if you do send roses you could pick orange ones or better still ones that are almost black in color. These flowers are dyed black and any florist can organize them for you. Make sure that the flowers you send are in a masculine looking vase or arrangement. Vases made of leather pewter or stainless steel will be better appreciated than delicate looking crystal or porcelain. The arrangement should not have anything remotely delicate in it. If you feel that the flowers will not be appreciated you could send your boyfriend or husband a beautiful bonsai instead. This will have maximum impact and can also be placed in the office in order to brighten up the place. A bonsai can be quite expensive but it makes a very attractive gift to a man.
