Flower Meanings​



The practice of giving flower bouquets as a gesture of love, friendship and good wishes began long ago. It's been carried through the ages from ancient Egypt into Europe and then to America. It  was popular in the Victorian era when messages were encoded in the types of flowers offered.

Why not use specially chosen flowers to convey your feelings?

Many flowers have seasons and some are available year round.

We are happy to make up a posy with your individual message attached with a hand-written gift tag.
