She said: "There will be a rush of people coming in a bit frantic.

"They might have forgotten Valentine’s Day and need something to take home with them.”

Reading Chronicle:

Ms Reilly revealed the deluxe red roses are their most popular seller and their most popular bouquet is the deluxe roses with all the trimmings — 12 deluxe red roses with a number of other flowers.

All of the shop's flowers come in fresh and are made up on the morning of the request.

Around 2,000 red roses and 1,000 different coloured roses have been ordered to the floristry ready to be sold to customers this Valentine's.

However, the floristry sells other varieties of flower too with Ms Reilly explaining "not everybody likes roses on Valentine’s Day”.

She said tulips and spring flowers have been popular this year.

Valentine's is a "busy time" for the floristry but Ms Reilly explained they "do a lot of weddings and events" and "at times weddings and events can be a lot more stressful".

She added: "We also have a lot of our brides and grooms who have got married that come back and the husbands tend to buy flowers for the wives as well.

"Some of them choose traditional red roses but sometimes we replicate the bouquets that they had on their wedding day."

The floristry's office manager, Lesley, added: "We have a team of florists here who are really passionate about flowers and I think that passion gets passed over when they make the bouquets.”

Sonning Flowers will be open until 6pm tomorrow evening and customers can either pre-order online or on the phone or just turn up.
