Giving fresh flower bouquets is a great thing to do. We give them as a gesture of love, remembrance, remorse, or just because.

The good news is GoneDigging offer ‘Next Day’ flower bouquet delivery at terrific prices. Fresh cut flowers delivered to their door are beautiful gifts for any occasion and convey a range of sentiments such as love, gratitude and friendship. 

We have an array of fresh flowers arrangements that all include a carefully considered combination of fresh, long-lasting blooms and colours – including Chrysanthemums, Carnations, Roses, Germini and more – skilfully arranged by a professional florist.

But did you know flowers as a form of gift has a long, interesting history? Sure, we’ve all given a fresh flower bouquet to a friend, family member or lover, or perhaps organised a hush-hush birthday flowers delivery for a loved one, but how many of us have stopped to ask: “Why do we give them?”

Unsurprisingly, the custom traces back to prehistoric times when flowers often had healing and herbal properties for our ancestors. Giving fresh cut flowers was a charitable thing to do, something that continues today. 

What’s more, there is evidence of flower-giving dating back to Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese writings, not to mention Greek and Roman mythology. 

More recently, fresh flower arrangements bloomed (please excuse the pun!) in the Middle Ages. At this time, the church didn’t approve of couples showing their affection for one another publically. 

So, giving flowers enabled them to convey their emotions without the worry that someone would see and report them. Couples then took to communicating with each other by means of blooms to send their messages of love. 

The flower tradition was taken to new heights, courtesy of Charles II of Sweden. In the 1700s, he introduced the Language of Flowers, which was a Persian custom. The Language of Flowers was used considerably in Turkey for the sending of messages. The ritual became so sophisticated that military messages were sent as flower bouquets delivered to the enemy, whom believed the blooms to be simply blooms and not a message. 

Furthermore, books were written on what different flowers said in the Victorian era, together with advice on how to arrange them to create a message between you and the receiver. 

The flower phenomenon has changed a little since then. Granted, we might not send literal messages in flowers, but a rose on Valentine’s Day says more than words ever could.
