The Secret Language of Flowers


Have you ever wanted to send a message to the recipient of a bunch of flowers to let them know how you're feeling?  Or evoke a sense of emotion through your bridal bouquet or table centrepieces?  Flowers have a secret language all of their own and in Victorian times, they believed that the type of flower, colour and presentation of the flower all had hidden meaning. Here are the meanings behind some of our most popular flowers:

Apple Give in to temptation; let me tempt you
