Valentine's Day Flowers: Each Color Represents Something Different

Don Kinzler Growing Together gardening columnist

THIS Valentine's Day what would you like with your bunch of roses?

They will reflect the lack of thought you put into choosing her flowers and send her the signal that she's just like every other girl on Valentine's Day. The company says it can ship orders on Valentine's Day all the way up to noon Wednesday.

"We have cooler space to store the flowers where a lot of the flower stores don't have that, so they can actually come shop this every day", said Regas.

Suzanne McKean-Makin, co-owner of McKean's Flowers said she also has seen roses are a popular gift, and are often featured in bouquets for Valentine's Day.

Mr Heathorn said the heat at this this time of year made it hard to grow flowers and keep roses.

In a statement issued yesterday (12 February), UPS said it will handle more than 8m pounds of blooms for USA consumers, enough to fill 64 wide-body 767s, on a very tight deadline. A single stem retails for Sh50 on the export market with Magana harvesting around 70,000 stems of flowers on average each day.

"Florida and the hurricanes in that area that we got them from, Costa Rico, they come from overseas", she said.

Crossman said the most dramatic increase in customers visiting her shop occurs during the last two days before Valentine's, while people more sporadically visit the shop for Valentine's gifts, when there is more time to spare in January and earlier in February. "Orchids are really popular, but mostly the flowers".

Walton said sales are also influenced by the day of the week that Valentine's Day falls on.

And unsurprisingly, florists experienced a whopping 500 per cent increase in sales on Valentine's Day previous year compared with an average Tuesday that month.

"In a nutshell, the changes will be around more fumigation of the product before it comes into the country, more rigorous checking when they arrive, and more consistently applied sampling procedures in all ports of entry", Holborn explained. Baraboo Floral typically sells 150-200 arrangements for Valentine's Day.

No one said love was cheap. Greenleaf received a shipment from Ecuador the week before Valentine's Day.

According to the index, the overall spend on flowers in the UAE has increased by 146% versus 2015. There are over 100 different types of roses but the most commonly used for the romantic holiday is the modern red rose.

From stocking additional supplies- to making sure they have enough delivery drivers for the day's demands. “As the largest privately-owned flower farm in Colombia, we depend on a reliable logistics partner to ship millions of blooms during this important holiday.”. But don't buy online; they may be delivered in a hot truck and die within a day. It features 61 full-size keys, 400 high-quality tones and 150 built-in rhythms to ensure you have all the tools you need to create a attractive musical number for the one you love.

Instagram has provided a launchpad for the up-and-coming Sonoma Flower Mart, too, where they're @sonomaflowermart.
