Flowers bring in big money on Valentine's Day

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and that means local flower shops are stocking up on holiday favorites.

The Flower Garden in Yakima says they've been working on gift baskets and flower baskets non stop.

In the last three years they say they've seen more people switching over to flower baskets because they last longer, but they will of course have plenty of long stem roses available.

They say they always have a great turnout on Valentine's Day.

"Valentine's is a one day holiday. Nobody wants it before, nobody wants it after. They want it on Valentine's," said Robert Mitchell.

Mitchell says they usually see about ten times as many people walk through their doors on Valentine's Day.
