Buckets are on sale at the Milford Hotel in Midtown and can be ordered online right here.

This year, instead of sending the typical bouquet of roses, give someone a gift of flowers that will last with a donation to the Central Park Conservancy. You can choose to plant daffodils, tulips, or mums in your special someone’s name. They’ll receive a notice of their gift with a personalized message from you.
