Hundreds order arrangements for Valentine's Day

Flowers

"Farmers in Latin America cut flowers at dawn and immediately pack them in temperature-controlled coolers, and these coolers are sent to the airport right away".

Everybody wants flowers delivered to them at work and everybody else jealous and it's just fun to have customers come in 'cause interacting with them it's fun. Most people appreciate any flowers because they reflect the love of the giver.

"Those (rainbow roses) are a new thing that they didn't have here before, which seemed to be popular with the customers for Valentine's Day", Johnson said.

"The first five months of the year are the busiest for the flower industry", said Andy Cornwell, regional manager, American Airlines Cargo Sales - Northern Europe.

Roses are a favourite on Valentine's Day. Workers are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.

But lots of other flowers are good for Valentine's Day too, like orchids. "The guys usually are the ones who (buy) flowers".


You might have noticed tents and trailers set up around South Georgia selling gifts, even food, ahead of Valentine's Day.

She said that demand for flowers for Valentine's Day this year is set to be even bigger this year.

Johnson took over the established Flowers and Gifts of Rocky Mount in November from former owner J.B. Stith, who owned it for almost 20 years. Fitzgerald said that if you call a florist, you are more likely to get better quality flowers for the price you pay. "But this year there's been other flowers added to bouquets, like gerberas, lilies and tulips".

And he was not alone, by 11pm on Valentine's Day evening many had given up all hope of their floral bouquets arriving and took to the company's page to complain.

At the end of 2014, roughly 55 producers in eight countries held fair trade certification for flowers and plants, Marron said. Our local florists usually carry it, but sometimes stock is out of stock. She gave him a pep talk, and told him not to be silly, and that they would get through it.

"We don't do anything traditional, so if you're looking for a dozen red roses, we are not your florist", said owner Eva Provenzale. Farmers, more and more with each passing year, are also increasingly adept at harvesting and shipping them to United States quickly and efficiently.
