Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Hester Higgins
If youre one of the lucky people who received a bunch of beautiful flowers from your loved one you may want to know how your gift can keep on giving. At Petals weve had a number of florists over the years help customers and our own staff with keeping their flowers alive and fresh. There are number of things our florists have taught us that you can do to ensure your Valentines efforts last longer. First of all no matter how they were delivered either by hand by the florists or by a courier make sure you put your flowers into a clean vase with the wrapping still on and let them drink up the clean water. Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
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 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.
