FAQs about Carnations
What do Carnations mean?
Certain colours can have a specific meaning. For example, pink carnations can mean a mother's love; light red is the carnation you give for someone you admire; if someone your love for someone is beyond imagining, you could give a mauve carnation - it symbolises dreams of fantasy; while a yellow carnation is a good colour to give if you need to let someone down gently, as it means rejection.
How do I get my carnation to look really full?
You can very gently roll carnations between your finger on the soft green bit where the petals meet the stem, and this will encourage them to open even wider.
