While we can’t presently communicate with plants, past gardeners found ways to use plants to communicate and share. Besides their medicinal use, plants have been used as symbols for years. The Victorians used a ‘Language of Flowers’ or ‘Dictionnaire du langage des fleurs’ to communicate via coded flowers representing different emotions and messages.
