Tell your loved one how special they are this Valentine’s Day13 February 2016
Tell your loved one how special they are this Valentine’s Day with plants, flowers and gifts from your local garden centre.
Roses that last all summer
Look out for cards for romance and fun, plus unique gifts from deliciously scented luxury pamper sets to hampers of gourmet food and chocolates. Spoil your Valentine with an intimate meal in the centre's restaurant; and pick out a plant to mark your special day, from forget-me-nots to the lovely velvety red rose ‘My Valentine’ for roses that last all summer.
Nothing says Valentines like a floral bouquet
But of course no Valentine’s Day would be complete without a floral bouquet from your local flower shop. Florists are on hand to advise you on seasonal, British-grown flowers and design your perfect combination. So make sure you make the most of friendly staff! Pick your flowers with care, though, as they sometimes mean more than you realise! According to the Victorian ‘language of flowers’, each bloom carries its own message.
Flower selection is important - tread carefully!
True romantics should include red tulips or daisies: both mean ‘I love you truly’. Apple blossoms, pansies and honeysuckle all speak of devotion and affection; violets stand for faithfulness; and lily of the valley symbolises the return of happiness. But beware of including white roses – ‘I cannot’ – or poppies – ‘I am not free’ – or you might not get quite the response you were intending!
