Valentines Flowers / January 12, 2019 / Mara Beasley
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.
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.
