Event details

You can say “I love you,” “I loathe you” or anything in between with flowers. Nowadays flowers are primarily given to express affection, gratitude or sympathy, but in Victorian times, sending secret, coded messages through carefully selected bouquets was all the rage.

In this program, learn the language of flowers – also called floriography – and the origins of those meanings. Explore how to put together different combinations to express a whole range of feelings – send a message to encourage or give good luck, share regrets or warnings or even end a relationship.
