If you hadn’t heard, there’s a heat wave going on. Our roses wouldn’t know it – they are pampered pretties – transported in water and kept in the cool. But, we understand the heat might still put you off fresh red roses. So what other options are there?

Ideas for Valentine’s Day other than fresh roses:

If you’d still like to send flowers, why not lilies, orchids, mixed flowers, or native flowers?

If you’d still like something classic, why not a preserved red rose in a glass globe?

If you don’t mind plants, what about a plant with a funny card message like: ‘Aloe, is it me you’re looking for?’

(We know, it’s corny, but what can we say – it’s Valentine’s Day!)

Or go with the classic red roses anyway. They say Tuesday will be a cooler day – hooray!
