Valentines Flowers / January 13, 2019 / Laurel Hawkins
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 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.
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.
Dont fret about choosing the right gift. Flowers are still the most desired gift from an admirer and to express love. Theyre personal romantic and according to researchers at Rutgers University actually raise peoples spirits.
