Valentine's Day: The Language of flowers

By Heather 11 years ago


Throughout the Victorian era flowers were used to send coded messages to loved ones expressing true feelings that couldn’t be spoken of. This was known as the language of flowers.

Whilst the world has changed dramatically since Victorian times there is something very romantic about sending messages using flowers and Valentine's Day provides the perfect opportunity to send your loved one a message.

The Wiggly Valentine’s Day bouquet contains a striking mixture of red flowers including chrysanthemums, lilies, tulips and alstroemeria. In the language of flowers, tulips represent a declaration of love and chrysanthemums say, “I love you”.

Because we only use British flowers, you can send your message of love in an eco-friendly bouquet.
