The Secret Language of Flowers

For thousands of years, flowers have been used to convey messages of love, friendship, celebration or condolence. In the Victorian era, when polite conversation was constrained by a strict moral code, the interest in floriography blossomed. The colour, shape and scent of a flower, and even the arrangement of a bouquet, became a way to reveal the secrets of the heart without uttering a single word.

In this age of direct, digital communication, the little book of floriography offers a tantalizing glimpse into a past way of life. From roses for love and angelica for inspiration to ivy for friendship and fidelity, explore the rich history, symbolism and cultural significance behind different blooms. Whether you're an ardent gardener, a lover of literature or simply captivated by nature's most glorious creations, this enchanting celebration of the language of flowers is sure to delight.
