Gentlemen, it’s that time of year again. Whether you’ve been dreading it for months after countless hints or have only just realised it’s happening, there’s no avoiding it – Valentine’s Day is upon us. We don’t like to deal in stereotypes but, unless you’re a botanist or a landscape gardener, the odds are that you don’t know a tulip from a turnip. Even if you’ve got a grasp of the floral basics, picking out the perfect Valentine’s bouquet for your one and only ain’t a walk in the park. For example, you might know she loves a classy, minimalist look – but you may not realise that white lilies are almost exclusively associated with funerals…not so romantic now, are they?
If you are flummoxed by flowers, don’t panic. We’ve created this helpful guide to ensure you choose the perfect posy to make your petal swoon (and keep her sweet for a fortnight at least).
