    Hey the weird thing is, i get there and most of the flowers are sold out - I remember this one time, I went to go to Coles, Safeway, even the seven eleven to get flowers, all sold out...eventually, realising this strange fate, I stole roses from my neighbour’s front garden. LOL

    hint: order flowers online 1 month prior, MOST websites haven't put the price of roses up yet !
    reality: they cost more because the florist gets charge LOADS more, the florist gets a higher turnover but often the same net profit.

    i haven't had to buy flowers in 10 years, after 2 days prep, valentines day and then cleanup the next day the last thing helena wants is flowers.

    Building the suspense Tim? :)

    I'm also curious to know the answer!
    I went with 0 - 20%, because I think outside of Valentine's Day, it would be mostly women placing orders for flowers. I've bought flowers for my other half on many occasions, but have never ordered online.

    NEWS FLASH: i actually do have work to do as well as post :eek:
    the answer is there is no answer, if you are a florist near a hospital then the female rate of orders goes right up to 70%+, if you are a cbd florist it goes to 50/50, if you are a railway station florist the male rate goes up.

    but you certainly won't forget this year TUESDAT 14th will you? no shopping at coles !
    hint: order now and forget about it, ask for it to be delivered as EARLY as possible to her work, you get BONUS points for being first as she knows shes sorted and all the other girls are wondering IF they are getting any.
    if you are last you actually get NEGATIVE points as she has seen every other girl getting flowers allllllllllllllllllll day. past lunch you are DEAD, because if she gets flowers after lunch the other girls think she made a phone call at lunch !!!!
    day before doesn't count, actually its against the rules.

    doesn't have to be big, just EARLY.

    Quick Google Search gave me this:
    http://www.aboutflowers.com/holiday-statistics.html
    It's puts male purchases of flowers at 26%. I have no idea what markets this covers or how accurate it is. It was a 1 minute cursory search to find an answer of some kind.

    It was just a cursory search to get a ballpark answer! As I said, I have no idea how valid the stats are.

    You left us hanging for an answer! ;)
