    6 or 12 red roses is traditional.

    Otherwise, it's very much up to you. I don't think there is a "best" colour with roses.

    Red Roses tend to indicate passion and are the sort you would buy for a girlfriend
    I’m assuming we are talking about a girlfriend rather than a wife, or you would know what to buy.
    A dozen mixed is fine; unless it’s for someone who isn’t your girlfriend and won’t be expecting them in which case ‘Less is more’ so just buy a single rose.
    Hope this helps

    I'm probably just a cheap date ( ) or out of touch with current prices....but I wouldn't thank anyone for spending £50 on flowers!! .
    I'd rather have a cheaper bunch of flowers, choccies and a bottle of wine...or a gift I could keep.
    Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift. Some people only dream of angels, we held one in our arms.

    I must be one of the only florists in the country that will not stock red roses at Valentines day(I will get them to order but not stock spare). This year more than ever the prices are crazy, battling with all flower prices including roses costing about 30% more than 1 year ago as just about all flowers are imported and worked in Euros.
    If your local Florist can get them there is a rose this year from Ecuador called Freedom they should retail around the same price as dutch roses did last year before the £v Euro problems.
    Personally I would take her out for a meal and just buy 1 red rose.

    Out of touch with prices probably, even myself in the trade can't believe what roses cost these days.
    I consider myself one of the cheapest Florists in the area if not the country, having very low overheads and no staff to pay.
    This year for the 1st time in 25 years of trading best red roses will exceed £50 in my shop, won't know exact price until they arrive this week but with foliage, gyp wrapping and delivery I am expecting upto £60. If I can get the Freedom rose from Ecuador they will be around £45.
    Lots of cheaper about, probably anything from £15-20/doz like the supermarkets will sell but I would not want to recieve them.
