Flowers on Valentines day

I'm not a fan of roses or cut flowers in the winter. Trucking and flying all the buds in from all over the world isn't that earth friendly so I keep a stock of different types of bulbs under the kitchen sink and when a holiday or birthday is coming up I start growing some on the kitchen table. Check out your local nursery for sale bulbs and buy some vintage planters at your favorite resale shop and get to work. It is much cooler getting a groovy vintage planter filled with paper whites than some over priced gross red roses on Valentines day.
