Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Blanche Durham
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.
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.
Many women face a dilemma whenever Valentines Day comes up. They would like to send Valentines flowers to the man in their lives but are unsure about how to proceed. Men tend to make it quite difficult for them by not admitting outright that they too appreciate receiving tokens of love such as flowers. Men enjoy getting expensive gifts but they also want to get gifts that come from the heart and indicate that their partners or loved ones truly care about them. If you are wondering how to make Valentines Day special for your husband or boyfriend you should consider sending him flowers this year. Of course you need to do this correctly so that you do not inadvertently make him feel uncomfortable and thereby ruin the entire purpose of the gesture.
