Flowers have been part of Valentine’s Day traditions since the 17th Century.
Roses have often been the most popular choice, as they represent different forms of love, depending on the colour.
Supposedly, roses were the favourite flower of Venus, Goddess of Love, which is why they are so heavily associated with romance.
Nowadays, however, nearly any flower can be given to show you’re thinking of them on Valentine’s Day.
With the most romantic day of the year just around the corner, it’s not too late to find the perfect flower arrangement to make your partner or loved one smile.
Here are eight of the best florists in Edinburgh, according to Google reviews, so that you can find the ideal gift for Valentine’s Day.
