Traditionally, when we wanted to send someone our best, a letter or greeting card covered in flowers by post used to be the most popular method. Nowadays, many of us are likely to communicate via a text, an email or even a social networking site. It could be argued that despite the convenience of such methods, their remoteness hampers us in communicating our sentiments effectively.
Hampers at Christmas or Easter are still popular, whilst Mothers Day and Valentine’s Day give us the opportunity to send flowers to loved ones. Whilst taking the time to send flowers by post is the perfect way to show you care, your own garden can be a great source of gifts for friends and family. By thinking ahead, it is possible to have a supply of potential little ‘thankyou’ gestures and presents that say ‘Happy Birthday’ when you’ve left it too late to order a bouquet!
