Tarot readers will remind us that the rose appears on several important Major Arcana cards; The Fool, The Magician, Strength and Death.
The pastel Fairtrade rose bouquet contains 10 x pink Fairtrade roses, 10 x white Fairtrade roses, 3 x gypsophila and are hand tied.
Blodeuwedd is a woman made from the flowers of broom which traditionally made from Ginestra. The flower is associated with weddings.
Genistra tinctoria is also known as dyer’s broom and was once used as a powerful yellow dye.
True Romance has 6 x sweet avalanche roses, 6 x red Naomi roses, 2 pink ginestra and 4 x parvi.
The lead flower, the Alstromeria, is traditionally associated with friendship and devotion. It’s said that the upside down leaves, that twist and turn, is similar to the way friendships mature.
If you’re looking to avoid red roses then this particular bouquet steps up as an interesting choice.
This bouquet contains Agapanthus a flower named after the Greek words “agape” and “anthos” or love flower. In the language of flowers the Agapanthus is occasionally used to mean “love letter”.
In parts of Africa the roots of the Agapanthus plant are sometimes boiled in water to create a tonic given to pregnant woman. This may be a dangerous thing to do as the sap contains substances that can upset the skin.
The Spring Meadow contains 4 x blue Agapanthus, 6 x white avalanche roses, 4 x tanaceturm, 3 x greenbell, 4 x yellow spray roses and 6 x Eucalyptus robusta.
