On Your Side: Valentine's For Less

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and if you are on a tight budget you may think there is no way you can surprise your love with something grand.

Well, think again!

Consumer Advocate Michelle Mortensen shows us how to do fabulous flora arrangements for less.

Watch one of the 2 videos above for instructions on all the arrangements made. 

Here are some floral buying tips: 

-- remove all foliage that would be under the water in the vase.

-- re-cut the stems

-- place in water with provided flower food. 

-- keep in a cool place out of direct sun

-- change the water every three days

-- avoid purchasing soft, open flowers

-- avoid slimy, dark stems

-- avoid yellowing foliage

-- squeeze the bulb of the rose and make sure it is firm.
