  1. Sunflowers symbolise unwavering faith and unconditional love. It’s perfect to send to
    your loved one if you want to express exactly how much you adore him or her.

    Sunflowers, especially the ones grown in farms, are often photographed stretching
    their tall stalks and vibrant petals towards the sun.

    For us here in the Derwent Valley are ” especially the ones grown ” out of one’s unconditional
    love for health & wellbeing. Thank you Mr. Rush
