Flowers are a dead-set to get a good reaction but often cut flowers have traveled thousands of miles and some have even been sprayed with pesticides.
By the time you give them to your loved one, you are lucky if they last a week.
So why not give someone a Love tree (pictured)? A real tree is a lasting token of your affection and this one has beautiful, white blossom.
It is native to the UK, encourages and provides for wildlife and contributes to offsetting your carbon footprint.
You can literally watch your relationship bloom.
