The Long Road To Valentine Blooms

Valentines Day is coming. University Ag Extension Horticulturist Donna Cuin says most people probably don’t realize the amount of energy that goes into creating the flowers we buy for February 14th- the timing, the fertilizers needed to encourage blossoms and multiple blooms.

She says growers in northern latitudes  have to do some manipulating.

“Things have to be encouraged to bloom that normally wouldn’t bloom this time of year. Or they have to be grown in places where its warm and sunny this time of year. So a lot of the Valentines Day flowers are grown in the southern hemisphere.”

Cuin says to keep the blossoms looking good be sure to use the packets provided. Keep them well watered, especially roses to ensure a longer life and maximum enjoyment.
