A Colour Guide to Your Roses

With love in the air as we approach Valentine’s Day, we thought we’d put together this helpful little guide to let that special person know exactly what you’re trying to say with your roses.

  • Red is a passionate colour; the colour of love, respect & courage
  • Pale pink is a sign of grace, admiration & elegance
  • Deep pink is a sign of gratitude, refinement & appreciation
  • Orange is for fascination, passion, desire & pride
  • Peach says “believe me”, modesty & sweetness
  • Yellow shows joy, happiness, caring & true friendship
  • White is the colour of innocence, purity & loyalty
  • Burgundy shows undying love & unconscious beauty
  • Lavender is love at first sight & enchantment

Now you’re armed with all of the information you need to tell someone exactly how you feel, it is time to start taking a look and finding the perfect bouquet for your significant other.

We have a huge range of Valentine’s Day flowers and other options to select from, so be sure to take a good long look and pick out the ideal bouquet.

Valentine’s Day Flowers from Longacres

It’s not just a hint of snow that’s in the air at the moment, but good old love as well.  Yes, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner now, and as we like to say here ‘The early bird catches the £5 off discount’.  Okay, maybe not such a traditional quote, but one to bear in mind!

Dozen Red Roses BouquetHere at Longacres we are giving you the opportunity to show how much you love that someone special in your life by offering a hand tied bouquet of a dozen red roses in a lovely presentation box for just £34.99!  That’s a great saving of £5 on the usual price.  You need to place your order quickly though as this offer expires at 11:59 on 7th February.  You could then spend that extra £5 on a nice box of chocolates from our food section (we won’t tell anyone if you decide to eat them all yourself) or perhaps add a shiny red heart balloon to your arrangement for £2.99?

Lindor Chocolate Arrangement

Maybe you prefer that understated romantic gesture of a single red rose, beautifully wrapped for £5.99, or a gorgeous rose gift pack containing 12 short stem roses with delicate diamonte detail, a box of Lindt chocolates and a bottle of rose wine for just £34.99.
