Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Flowers

13th February

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to share love and flowers to the special people in your life. However, this one day comes with a cost to the environment when it comes to the gift of giving.
Each year people head to the shops and florists looking to buy their beloved a bouquet. But how many people consider the potential impact thousands of people buying fresh flowers could have on the environment?

 

And what if we told you there are better alternatives…

 

The issue with fresh cut flowers is the potential harm of pesticides from the farms they’re grown on. Coupled with the use of harsh chemical fertilisers to accommodate mass production and meet the needs of supply and demand. The cycle of environmental implications doesn’t end there. Often the bouquets are then packaged in non-recyclable wrapping, making them even less eco-friendly.

We understand that people aren’t going to totally ditch giving flowers. So, we dug up some eco-friendly alternatives. Not only will they help save the environment, but they’re also cost-effective and great value!

So rather than spending your money on flowers that will only last about a week.

This Valentine’s Day,

try these eco-friendly potted flower plants:

Orchids

  • Orchids come in an assortment of different colours.
  • They can last over 3 weeks when potted in a plant pot.
  • They like bright light but not direct sunlight. Good humidity and circulation of air. Perfect for keeping in the home.

Cyclamen

  • Versatile flowers that can be kept both indoors and outdoors.
  • They come in white, soft pink and dark pink. Romantic colours for Valentine’s Day.
  • Give them to your loved ones on Valentine’s Day and watch them last all the way until late spring.

Indoor Rose Bush

  • Available at any time of year when potted in a plant.
  • Even after Valentine’s Day, they’re a great gift for other special occasions.
  • One small bush can produce a dozen or more blooms that last for weeks.

Kalanchoe

  • Only need to be watered once a week.
  • They come in over 100 varieties, colours include red, pink, yellow and white.
  • These flowers are very long lasting!

African Violets

  • Tropical plants that constantly bloom throughout the year.
  • Come in shades of lavender and blue. A little more unique than most flowers will be.
