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. *** Securely packed for Safe delivery ~ Shipping safely Worldwide, since 1965 *** 8 x 10 x 1 ".
