Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Hester Higgins.
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.
Finally regardless of whether you choose to send Valentines flowers or to purchase Valentines flowers yourself you should enclose a small note or other token with the bouquet that will further convey your sentiments to your partner. When you are choosing Valentines flowers for your beloved you should consider her personality and demeanor when you are choosing the bouquet. A person who is demure will appreciate a simple arrangement versus an extravagant over the top display of flowers. Under no circumstances should you ever use plastic or dead flowers in an arrangement. You should ensure the vendor you select provides only fresh flowers for your bouquet. For most of us guys flowers are a mystery. We know the reaction they get and that flowers are a great way to show how much we care.
