When the question's been popped, we've got the perfect personalised engagement gift to celebrate. The pretty Myrtle plant has long been associated with love.
It was sacred to Aphrodite in classical times, and the Victorians added sprigs to bridal bouquets to symbolise a happy marriage. A delightful tradition which we think should be continued - the lucky recipient can take a sprig from their very own myrtle plant that you gave them to add to their wedding bouque.
We send a potted Myrtle plant: its dense green leaves have a lovely spicy aroma when crushed; wonderfully scented creamy-white flowers in late spring; followed by dark purple berries, which can be used to season meat dishes. The Myrtle can be planted outside in a sunny spot, or kept in its pot to be brought indoors for winter. Along with their Myrtle they will also receive a personalised waterproof plant label to keep alongside their tree for years to come.
All of this comes beautifully hand packed in our wooden crates ready to delight instantly as well as provide years of growing pleasure long into their marriage.
The beautiful gift crate measures: 70 x 16 x 16cm
