Bloomin’ marvellous: What You Need to Know When Buying Valentine’s Flowers
It’s very easy to buy a bunch of roses from the first place you see them, whether that’s a roadside vendor, a supermarket or florist. However, before you buy flowers for your valentine there are a few things you need to check. Firstly, look for flowers with tight buds, if the buds haven’t fully opened that’s not a problem. Buying, flowers with fully opened buds will mean they only stay fresh for a couple of days after purchase. On the other hand tighter buds, will last that bit longer as they blossom later and degrade slower that than fully ripened buds.You should also check if the flowers you purchase have been refrigerated. Yes, flowers like vegetables need to keep in a cool environment to keep their freshness.Don’t buy from a roadside vendor, industry experts say they often get inferior quality products as the top specimens are bought up by the likes of supermarkets, grocers and florists. If you can buy from a physical store that’s always preferable because most online stores will not have refrigerated delivery vans and your flowers will suffer.Finally, make sure you buy plant food to extend the life of your flowers, it really does work. If your flowers don’t come with plant food provided, then please buy some!
DIY Flower Picking
Picking your love’s favourite wildflowers is the ultimate romantic statement. A few tips before you venture out into the great outdoors: ensure you have the landowner's permission before you go traipsing through woods, farmlands and meadows. You’ll also need a few essentials, including, a bucket or container to collect your various wildflowers, some protection for your hands; normal gardening gloves will do, also grab some scissors to strip away the flowers you fancy. Avoid digging up whole plants – this is illegal. Or if you are of an artistic nature, why not try your hand at making decorative paper flower arrangements, they won’t die and your handiwork will be so much more appreciated than store bought flowers.
Save Money on With Cheaper Flowers
There are more than a few options to save money on Valentine’s flowers. Artificial flowers are cheaper than fresh, they last longer and are much cheaper too. Or buy just one red rose, this symbolises that you’ve found your perfect partner. Mix it up and try something new, why not buy a pot plant like an orchid or a lily, buy it fully developed or let your partner watch it grow and flourish.Other cheaper alternates to roses include carnations, daffodils and chrysanthemums. Have your own vase – then use it and save money on buying a new vase from the store.
Champagne sees some large discounts over Valentine’s period, especially at the big supermarkets.

Also, Prosecco can be substantially cheaper, there’s no need to buy Champagne for the name only, and if you and your loved one prefer the taste of Prosecco or Cava anyway, then your quid's in!Do you know the difference between Champagne and other sparkling wines - tell the truth?
