Valentine's Day at Danckert's Florist has always been an exciting time, both for the staff, and for the customers. From bashful young lads gingerly stepping into the shop like they were about to but something from the top shelf at the Newsagents, and "old hands at the job" husbands coming in to order their "usual" that they have had for the last few years, to eager lotharios hoping that that someone they are going to surprise with some beautiful roses will say "Yes!"....

We get them all! Red Roses always tend to be the order of the day for Valentines, no matter how many great new ideas the press or media come up with, and we always supply the finest quality grade one varieties. This year we will be using a beautiful large headed variety called "Freedom", which will be flying in from Columbia, and is renowned for its beauty and its lasting quality. Roses generally are not a long lasting flower, but these "Freedom" should last long after the heat of Valentine’s Day has cooled down! Having said that, we will also be offering a wide choice of other romantic delights to choose from, with prices to suit all pockets, and for those who just can't help themselves we can offer not just a "Single Kiss rose set or a "Dramatic Dozen" roses, but also an "Unforgettable 50 rose hand tie"! ...the sky really is the limit! We have sent out over the years quite a few thousand roses in one form or another, and last year had a couple of the "50 Rose" orders going out locally.

Who says that there's no romance left in the Black Country? Not us!! As they say in Wednesbury... "'Ar luv yow!" We have drafted in (or, in the case of family members, bribed!) extra drivers to cope with the increased demand that Valentine’s Day brings, and they will all be out on the road early on Friday to start sending out Cupids little messengers! Meanwhile the rest of the staff will be busy at the shop making up the orders, and keeping those "Last minute Larrys" happy as they come in on the way home from work!
