In earlier centuries it was for the usefulness of flowers more than their beauty that people went out into the fields and woods to look for them, as most medicines were made from plants. Wild flowers’ leaves and roots provided a natural food supply; petals and fruits were crushed to make dyes; and many plants were thought to give protection against all manner of evil in a superstitious age.
