Here we are, another Valentine’s Day just around the corner. Maybe you’re finding it difficult to come up with fresh and exciting ideas for dates- this can be tough whether you’re with someone new or in a long-term relationship.
Let’s look on the bright “seed”of things.
If you’re a seasoned plant parent, or wanting to be, or just someone who enjoys a fun project, stick around for this refreshing and original Valentine’s Day date idea!
Flowers are a BIG part of the Day of Love and Romance. This year, cut flowers are projected to account for 37% of all presents given (according to the National Retail Federation).” The problem with cut flowers is that they end up wilting and dying after only ten days- and can cause quite a bit of waste!
This raises the question- what other ways are there to express your love?
We have an idea for you that encourages quality time with your partner- plus an opportunity to create something lasting.
This Valentine’s Day, plant the seed of your affection in terms of a rose bush that will give you beautiful flowers all the way from summer to fall!
Grab your favorite beverage, snuggle up, and choose a rose bush to grow together in the name of your relationship (I promise, they’re easier to take care of than a dog or kid!). These can be planted in yards or in pots, so no matter where you live, your love bush can be with you.
How’s that for a representation of long lasting adoration? Take a look at some of our favorite Roses you can choose from with your partner
The ,Forever Amber Rose boasts beautiful apricot-colored petals and a strong, fruity fragrance. It also is a low maintenance rose bush; it is disease resistant and doesn’t spread out much, usually staying neat and compact.
The eye-catching Midnight Fire Rose has a smoky orange and purple overlay of petals. This is a petite rose bush, only reaching to about 1-2 feet high and spreading out about the same amount. It has lush dark green foliage and is also very fragrant.
The Chantilly Cream Rose has the luxurious color that its name implies. Its delicate, creamy yellow petals darken in the center. Its sweet rose scent is a great pollinator attractor and it’s also both disease and rust resistant.
All three rose varieties have so much to offer, but for us, the Chantilly Cream Rose is hard to pass up.
Not only does it smell and look beautiful, it also helps to attract pollinators, it is resistant to problems that a potential owner could struggle with, and it grows very compact, making it easy to plant just about anywhere. The cherry on top? It is also a low maintenance type of rose, so even if you are new to caring for plants, this rose will make the job easy on you.
The three rose varieties mentioned are just a small part of a ,new collection of 2022 roses from Nature Hills, America’s Largest Online Plant Nursery.
With hundreds of varieties to choose from, you could always have extra fun by mixing and matching!
The quality of this company’s flowers cannot be matched with any other. They “rose” the bar too high. See what we did there?
