The ancient Greeks and Romans associated roses with goddesses of love Aphrodite and Venus, making the flowers a popular choice of gift as Valentine’s Day became a fixture of the calendar centuries ago.

Lockdown restrictions mean florists are closed for browsing this year, but many flower shops are offering deliveries or click and collect services in time for February 14, meaning no-one needs to miss out on a pretty bouquet in 2021.
