Valentine’s Day is just hours away and at florists across our area, a certain kind of flower is flying out the door.

You may have guessed it. Red roses are the most popular flowers to order for your sweetheart.

Florists at Boynton Villager Florist in Boynton Beach say they ordered at least 1,000 roses this week and they’re going fast.

They say as many as 300 flower deliveries are scheduled for tomorrow.

They’re trying to keep up with the demand.

“It's just every time I make a new arrangement, it gets sold,” said Rebecca Walsh, a floral designer at Boynton Villager Florist. “So, I'm just trying to have everything prepared mainly because in a few hours it's going to be a storm of 20 guys in here trying to get roses.”

Boynton Villager Florist says Valentine’s Day is their second busiest day after Mother’s Day.

Whenever possible, florists recommend ordering flowers in advance. Even if it’s the day before Valentine’s Day.
