Bestselling author Jennifer Davies has a love of gardening and all things floral & a gift for unearthing nuggets of fascinating historical detail. She was author of the books, and Associate Producer of the BBC productions made from her books, The Victorian Kitchen Gardener , The Victorian Flower Garden, and The Wartime Kitchen Garden. In this book she tells, for the first time, the captivating story of the flower shop, florists & how it came into being & the men and women who have worked in them over the years. This celebrates the time-honored florists' profession from its earliest beginnings in Victorian England when only the wealthiest could afford flowers to the mass-market floral industry of modern times when people pick up flowers for many occasions all year round. We meet the court florists, floral arrangers and suppliers to kings and queens who decorated the homes and palaces of royalty for family and state occasions; as well as the flower sellers at the ports, who, in the heyday of ship travel, had only a few hours to deliver the elaborate 'Bon Voyage' bouquets to passengers on the great ocean liners; the fearless nurserymen who smuggled violets up to the city so war-weary London could have a bit of cheer amidst the Blitz & the hardworking family florists who are as busy today as their great-grandfathers and grandmothers were in Victorian times.

Sinopsis: The story of the flower shop, and the men and women who have worked in them since Victorian days.
Reseña del editor: We've all stopped to admire the color, beauty, and wondrous shapes of the tulips, freesias, and lilies carefully arranged in a florist's window, but how and when did the flower shop--and our fascination with flowers--begin? "Saying It With Flowers" presents an illustrated history of the florist, celebrating this time-honored profession from its Victorian beginnings to the mass-market industry of the 21st century. We meet the court florists who decorated the homes of royalty, the flower sellers who rushed to deliver "Bon Voyage" bouquets to passengers aboard the great ocean liners, the enterprising nurserymen who smuggled violets to war-torn London, and the hardworking family florists who are as busy today as their great grandfathers were in Victorian times. There are also chapters on wedding flowers, funeral tributes, flowers to wear, and the tradition of floral gift-giving. Bursting with period photos and illustrations, this is a lasting tribute to the splendors of the flower shop.
