People have been giving flowers from a florist as gifts for a long time. In the ancient world, flowers were a way of expressing emotions. Different flowers were associated with different emotions, so if you wanted to express joy, sorrow or gratitude, you would be able to give the relevant type of flower. Additionally, in the ancient Greek world, flowers were associated with gods and goddesses, so giving flowers as a gift could have a spiritual element as well.
By the Middle Ages, both English and French cultures had developed a tradition of giving flowers as a gift. For example, flowers were a way of showing romantic interest in a prospective bride. However, it was in Victorian times that the tradition became widely celebrated. Society believed that if a person was well raised, they would exercise self-control. This included actions, but also words. As a result, many young men found it hard to express their feelings in words, and instead flowers became the way of showing romantic feelings. In Victorian times, the flowers given would be given according to certain rules. For example, red roses were romantic if given the right way up, but if the giver presented them upside down, it would be a grave insult, since upside down red roses symbolised anger, rather than undying love! A florist in Victorian Yorkshire would have had to know all the rules.
Fortunately, in modern Yorkshire, flowers are not bound by such strict rules. To the contrary, you can be as creative as you want in gifting flowers. Modern flower growing techniques mean that it is possible to get a wide range of flowers in all shapes, sizes and colours, all the way through the year. By choosing a display that you enjoy, you can express happiness, joy, appreciation, sorrow, and, of course, love by a professionally arranged display.
