Red Roses at Valentine’s:
When you think about Valentines Day it is hard not to think about red roses, they are synonymous with the date and are the ultimate romantic gesture to lots of people! I use beautiful, large headed, long stemmed roses, which are the best quality you can get from the market and have such a long vase life. These do go up in price around Valentines Day, not because us florists are hiking up the price, but because of sale and demand. For lots of the flower growers they make a high proportion of their sales during Valentines and Mothers Day, and lots of the rest of the years work will go into the planning of these two major events. So it makes sense that their price will increase, this price increase then gets passed onto our flower market and then onto us florists.
The size and quality of roses you will buy in a quality florist, will have no comparison to the bargain rose deals you see advertised on tv and magazines, which will be short stemmed and small headed. I am not saying that you have to spend £75.00 on a dozen red roses from a florist, you can equally pick up a couple bunches of spring flowers for much less if you prefer. I am definitely not saying it is about how much money you spend, I just want to make people aware of the huge difference in quality of the roses you see advertised than those sold by experienced florists. Florists will also carefully hand tie your bouquet with foliage, wrap it perfectly and deliver it successfully on the day.
Some florists have stopped selling red roses all together on Valentines Day and only offer alternatives, I do still love the idea of red roses and wrapped in a bouquet with beautiful spring foliage they can look stunning. I do this because the customer has made a decision to buy them because they know that their partner will love them, not just because they feel pressured that red roses are the only option on Valentines Day! On the whole though I do tend to sell more spring, seasonal bouquets filled with pretty mixed blooms. You can choose a bouquet in their favourite colours, or include their favourite flower if you know it that is major brownie points! If not then I always go with spring ranunculus, anemone and tulips with gorgeous foliage… you are guaranteed they will love them!
If you are unsure then ask your florist to create a beautiful bespoke, spring bouquet, and they will make you something wonderful that is in season and unique just for your Valentine! At this time of year we are spoilt for spring blooms so Valentine’s Day can be all sorts of colours not just red! If they are a bright spring person then go for yellow narcissi and bright tulips, or if they are more prefer softer colours then go for the pretty pale pink hyacinths and ranunculus!
