There was no busier shop in Gatton than Gatton Florist this week as the Valentine's Day rush set in.

Workers at the store are breathing a huge sigh of relief today with the completion of Valentine's Day for yet another year.

Gatton Florist owner, Lisa Spierling, said Valentine's Day was as busy as usual with many people taking the opportunity to make someone feel special.

“Most people pre-order their flowers but their have been a lot of walk-ins to the shop as well,” she said.

“To be honest, it's just as busy the day after Valentine's Day because of all the guilt purchases.

“In depressing times like this the one thing that sells well is chocolates and flowers because it's one luxury people can still afford.

“At the moment we need to spread the love and put some smiles on faces.”

Mrs Spierling said the business had also been the beneficiary of generosity in the wake of the floods.

“We lost our whole farm and crop, which was on Gatton-Helidon Road right in the eye of the floods,” she said.

“We are lucky to have flowers still because we had a farm elsewhere and there are flower growers from all over Australia offering their help which has been fantastic,” she said.
