You canít go wrong sending flowers for Valentines Day.

Itís a tradition that allows you to make a simple gesture of friendship or a serious declaration of love. The sentiment can be as simple or as serious as you wish, depending on the flowers you choose, and itís a gift that can be tailored to the recipient.

Elsie Grimsley, owner of Flowertown Florist understands the importance flowers play in marking the events in our lives.

ìItís a good thing to have a florist you can trust. Some of our customers have been coming to us for years, when thereís a birth, a wedding or a funeral ñ or of course for special occasions like anniversaries or Valentines Day. They will call a florist they have confidence in.î

Grimsleyís daughter Judith says their customers are generally good at Valentines Day when it comes to calling ahead to order flowers instead of waiting until the last minute.

While fresh cut flowers and spring flowers are nice, roses continue to be the number one seller.
