Valentines Day

The day for love and FLOWERS

Flowers History with Valentines

Valentine's Day flowers began as a tradition in the 17th century, since roses, which represent love in all its forms, were the flowers of choice for the Day. The rose is supposed to be the favorite flower of Venus, the Goddess of Love, because it stood for strong feelings. As a result, lovers began giving flowers to those they cared about to show their love for each other, which often knew no bounds. As we know, the Catholic Church recognizes three different saints named Valentine. The history of this holiday all goes back to them and many tales are to say what has occurred, but until then we all know February 14, marks the day for love.

Valentine's Day Inspires the Heaviest Demand for Long-stemmed Roses

  • After the Christmas season demand for red roses is filled, growers need 50-70 days to produce enough roses for Valentine's Day.

  • Winter's shorter daylight hours and higher energy costs hamper efforts to grow large rose crops.

  • Inclement weather often requires extreme measures to ensure that flowers are delivered in time.

  • To fulfill the tremendous number of orders for Valentine's Day flowers, florists have to hire additional help, work longer hours and acquire extra delivery vehicles and drivers
