It's not too late to save on roses

If you haven't ordered flowers for your Valentine yet, don't worry. Your procrastination doesn't have to cost you.

Even this day before Valentine's Day, you can get a dozen roses for $10 or less at any one of the 16 Produce Junction stores in our area.

If you can't find a Produce Junction nearby, look for a Genuardi's. They're selling a dozen roses for $19.99. Their "chop and drop" bouquets are already arranged, so that all you have to do is trim the stems and put them in a vase.

For a professional florist's look at a do-it-yourself price, Genuardi's floral manager Shawn Lathrop suggests adding other flowers or leaves to fill out your arrangement.

Other stores offering good deals on roses include Superfresh, where a dozen long-stem roses are selling for $15.99; Pathmark, where a dozen long-stem roses are selling for $25.99 arranged in a vase, and for $15.98 by themselves; Aldi, where a dozen roses are $16.99; and Target, where a dozen long-stems in a vase are $24.99.
