QUINCY (WGEM) - Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, and if you don’t have flowers picked out for your sweetie, you might want to do it soon.

Karen Wellman with Wellman Florist in Quincy said Tuesday the supply chain issues are making it hard for them to get roses.

Not only that, but she said supply problems this year mean you’ll likely pay more to get the same thing you got last year.

“Not only do you have less production, you have less work force to produce or get that product to us. So everything is just down chain. Everything affects everything else and so the prices are a little bit higher this year,” Wellman said.

She said your best bet is to order as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, other experts said another option is to skip the roses, and go for a different floral arrangement this year.
