Over hundreds of years, flowers have come to possess specific meanings. You can say a lot with a carefully chosen bouquet by matching your flower choice to the occasion.
Valentine's Day: The clue's in the name of the forget-me-not flower. Pair a bunch with roses, violets and pansies for a memorable Valentine's bouquet.
For a special someone: Camellias come in a variety of colours with different meanings, including passion and faithfulness; they'll show your partner how much you love them.
Making an apology: Chrysanthemums have often been associated with revealing the truth, which might be suitable if you need to tell someone you're sorry.
Get well soon: The peaceful blue hues of irises and hydrangeas make them a popular choice to send to someone recovering from illness.
Moving house: Daffodils bloom in the spring, so they have connotations of new beginnings. A bunch of these flowers will definitely brighten up a friend's new living room.
Funerals: Lilies are an age-old symbol of devotion. They're traditionally used at funerals to show you're still thinking of the one who's passed on.
First dates: Lilacs are associated with youth and first love, while daisies represent innocence. Both are a perfect way to break the ice on a first date.
