Pictou County jewellers and florists get set for Valentine's Day

Just try to get ahead of tomorrow's rush. It's no longer left until the last minute, as the majority (28%) of Valentine's purchases in the UAE are made on 11 February.

"Valentine's Day is a very busy day for us", Hyatt said. "What's available, and you're going to get someone who gets something in more recently, and you're going to get full value". The master degree holder in floral design has watched flower arrangements evolve over time.

"I think a combination of cut flowers and plants will always be greatly appreciated due to their longevity", McKinley said.

Decandia says these guys are also big sellers here at Scott's hallmark in Loudonville.

Local floral shops have been preparing for many weeks in the lead-up to the busiest time of the year for them: Valentine's Day.

"They're dyed through the stems, which makes them unique and pretty", Brooks said. To ensure flowers are delivered at the peak of freshness, UPS transports the shipments from colorful growing fields in Latin American countries through the Miami International Airport (MIA), where UPS is one of the largest air cargo carriers, to the final recipient in less than two days.

He said while some people were picking up native plants for weddings and indoor plants for gifts, roses were still the pick of the bunch for February 14.

As Valentine's Day approaches, a florist's schedule can be wrapped up in one word, used multiple times.

UPS said it expects to transport more than 8 million pounds of flowers - and a total of 88 million blossoms - to destinations in the United States, which the integrator said was equivalent to 64 filled 767 aircraft.

A reminder to procrastinators, Valentine's Day is Wednesday.

As of yesterday, almost all green houses, including the 19 hectares Magana Flowers facility, had no red roses.

Compared to an average week day, florists experienced a 500 per cent increase in sales on Valentine's Day, according to the data.

Specialty flowers can still be ordered at local flower shops or you can pick some up at your local grocery or drug store.

It's important to her that the "flowers are flawless for the person that they are sending them to". Now's the time to get your flower orders in.

32 percent of Valentine's Day shoppers are as well. "It really makes you feel happy you're doing this". We followed instructions to trim stems and place flowers in water, with provided flower food. "Every day is a special day for us, but since the day is dedicated for Valentine's, I think my wife deserves something great on Valentine's day".
