February 11, 2019

Floral expert, designer and founder of floral subscription box, Petal Post, Zoe Lamont, shares everything you need to know about Valentine’s Day.

  1. Red roses triple in price over Valentine’s Day
  2. Most red roses during the Valentine’s Day period are imported and not grown in Australia.
  3. Consumers are looking to support farmers by purchasing 100% locally grown blooms
  4. Valentine’s Day is not as stereotypical as before and flowers are purchased to show gratitude, friendship and self-love.
  5. Eco-friendly, low waste options minus the plastic packaging are popular

How to care for roses:

  1. Remove any ‘guard’ petals that protect the bloom on its journey to you
  2. Snap off any missed thorns
  3. To extend the life of your local roses, snip the stem at an angle and place them in fresh water and in a clean vase
  4. Keep your roses away from direct sunlight and away from the fruit bowl
  5. Refresh the water daily and re-cut stems each time
