Your guide to last minute Valentine’s Day flower shopping


You still have time to surprise your loved one with flowers for Valentine’s Day!

Florists at Randall’s Farm in Ludlow are working until 8:00 p.m. to fulfill customers’ orders.

Owner Karen Randall said Valentine’s Day is a last minute holiday, so they are prepared for a busy day. 22News spoke with one man who bought some gifts for his Valentine.

“I just came to pick up a few things to make dinner tonight and grab some flowers for my girlfriend,” Edward Breton said. “She’ll be happy. She loves flowers.” 

Karen told 22News she expects an early evening rush once people get out of work. It’s as easy as grab and go.
