One of the most visited pages on our old website was The Meaning of Flower Names. It's a question that we are often asked, but I had not realised just how many searched that topic on Google.
For some reason, which I can't explain, I decided to leave that page out of our new website, but we are still regularly asked the question, so back by public demand, this time on our blog in several parts is:
