Saying it with Flowers: The Story of the Flower shop

Price £14.50

The book tells the captivating story of the flower shop and intriguing tales of the men and women who worked in them. "Saying it with Flowers" celebrates the time-honoured floral profession from its earliest incarnations in Victorian Britain to the mass market industry of the twenty-first century. We meet the courts florists who decorated the homes of royalty, the port flower sellers who had a matter of hours to deliver the Bon Voyage bouquets to passengers on the great ocean liners, the enterprising nurserymen who smuggled violets up to war-torn London and the hardworking family florists who are as busy today as their great-grandfathers were in Victorian times. With stunning period drawings, photographs and illustrations, Saying it with Flowers is a magnificent and lasting tribute to the splendour of the flower shop.
