Florists Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

Floral shops around town are getting ready for the second biggest holiday for flower sales.

Valentine's comes in behind Mother's Day for flower sales, but that doesn't make it any less busy. Town South Floral has more than 400 orders for Monday and expects to make at least 200 deliveries. Owner, Ricky Green, says red roses out sell other flowers 10 to 1, but this year lots of people are adding more color to their bouquets.

"This our tropical special. They have some birds of paradise, gerber daises, lillies. A lot of people like the open look; tropical other then the traditional type floral arrangement," said Green.

Green says he expects to stay around until midnight Sunday to make sure they get all their orders filled. But they will also be ready with a full house of flowers for last minute shoppers Monday.
