21 March to 19 April
What the stars say: “Mars rules strong, adventurous Aries, so pick daring red flowers with ‘sharp’ pointed edges.”
What we recommend: Pick our show-stopping Bright Rose & Alstroemeria Bouquet. Even the fiercest Aries will approve!
20 April to 20 May
What the stars say: “Every Taurus is a sucker for a classic red rose. Beautifully scented and synonymous with romance, there’s no better choice for a sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love.”
What we recommend: Leave them swooning with our bestselling 12 Red Roses that pop straight through the letterbox.
21 May to 20 June
What the stars say: “Geminis like to do things differently, so opt for bold yellow flowers like daffodils. Blooms beloved by bees will also go down well as Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, also reigns over insects!”
What we recommend: Some sunny germini for a Gemini? Our cheerful Loxton Bouquet is a no brainer!
21 June to 22 July
What the stars say: “The Moon rules Cancer, so choose flowers with celestial white petals, or species that only bloom at night. Try evening primrose or moonflower.”
What we recommend: The angelic white roses in our Sky Bouquet, sprinkled with veronica, eryngium and eucalyptus, are sure to appeal to your soul-searching Cancer.
23 July to 22 August
What the stars say: “Think big, bright, bold blooms that scream summer. Leo is ruled by the Sun, so sunflowers or marigolds are hard to beat. Failing that, anything colourful!”
What we recommend: Our sizzling pink and orange Rose & Ranunculus Bouquet certainly brings the zing!
23 August to 22 September
What the stars say: “Virgos often have anxious tendencies, so bouquets featuring soothing lavender make a thoughtful choice. Opt for small, delicate flowers with nutritious or herbal value.”
What we recommend: Our Velvet Violet Bouquet features vintagey lilac roses, white lisianthus and scented lavender. It’s any Virgo’s dream!
23 September to 22 October
What the stars say: “Venus reigns over Libra as well as Taurus, but Libras are softer, sweeter and less sensual than their amorous spring-time counterparts. Choose a pretty pink rose or a blousy hydrangea. If it’s fragrant and timelessly beautiful, they’ll love it.”
What we recommend: Our Rose, Tulip & Hyacinth Bouquet ticks all Libra’s boxes, as does our joyful Spring Pinks.
23 October to 21 November
What the stars say: “Striking, long-lasting orchids are a fabulous fit for the edgy and loyal Scorpio. This is a passionate sign, so flowers that show off their stamens make a clever choice too. Oriental lilies will wow your Scorpio pal.”
22 November to 21 December
What the stars say: “Sagittarius is the sign of travel, so choose an exotic flower that’s brimming with X factor. Consider jasmine or orchids. Something larger than life!”
22 December to 19 January
What the stars say: “Classy, minimalist Capricorns don’t like jazzy flowers, so plump for a neutral bouquet in elegant whites and greens. No yellow and pink here!”
20 January to 18 February
What the stars say: “Once again, orchids will impress Aquarius, as they like unusual blooms that stand out from the crowd. Bright colours, especially blue, will get the thumbs up too.”
19 February to 20 March
What the stars say: “Kind and gentle Pisces has a penchant for pastels and herbs. Look for bouquets with a wild, naturalistic edge to their style. Daisies are a favourite.”
