Flowers are always the No. 1 gift for Valentine’s Day. Ella Maxwell from Hoerr Nursery advocates putting together your own arrangement, using non-traditional vessels. Also, it’s good to use long-lasting flowers like Chrysanthemums, Alstromeria, & Carnations. Roses, of course, are always a hit as well; please make sure to cut your roses often and they will keep for a long time.
