Valentine’s Day – Send your Love with Flowers

Valentine is the perfect time so say ‘I love you, I care, you are so special‘ (for those times you meant to do it and were too busy). Research has shown that fresh flowers do make people feel better, so here’s to brighten someone’s day!

Of all the beautiful flowers, the rose is universally beloved and linked symbolically to Aphrodite and Venus, the goddess of Love. So it is no surprise that red roses have traditionally become the flower associated with Love, Anniversaries and Valentine’s Day. However, red roses now have strong competition with other very popular flowers, especially Gerbera Daisies, Oriental Lilies, Dendrobium Orchids and Alstroemeria. Carnations are also a long time favorite as companion flowers. These flowers are excellent value, especially for the Valentine Week.

This month’s flower tip

Make sure to order your flowers early, to avoid disappointment especially at a busy holiday time
