Flowerpaedia by Cheralyn Darcey

WANT to encourage that special someone to have no fear? Present them with a grey spider flower.

Dreaming of someone special but can't quite find the words? Say it with Queen of the Night, California poppy, cinnamon, purslane or monkshood.

Floral expert Cheralyn Darcey's new book, Flowerpaedia, is an A-Z reference guide to more than 1000 flowers.

Designed as a comprehensive dictionary, it shows what flowers to buy for any occasion according to the feeling or emotion you want to convey or change, or star sign of the recipient.

It also offers an insight into what each flower means - emotionally, spiritually and symbolically.

Botanical names are listed for exact identification.

Cheralyn shares how we can work with a myriad of flowers to help achieve balance, calm or healing in our lives, homes and gardens.
