Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Eve Callahan
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.
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.
In other words you look like you were planning ahead and avoid any risk of your gift looking like a last-minute afterthought. Theres more to Valentines than just red roses. While beautiful long-stem red roses are still the most popular Valentines flower gift there are lots of other options for every taste and budget. Many women prefer pretty pastel roses in pink peach yellow or assorted spring colors. They can make you stand out from the crowd. And almost half of all Valentines bouquets arent roses at all; theyre lush mixed bouquets and spring flowers such as tulips. Choosing something unique can show you remember your sweethearts favorite color or flower. Your favorite florist will have a great selection and can quickly help you with the best choice. Remember flowers after Valentines too.
