QUESTION: 1

Flowers have been growing around the world for a very long time. They thrive from the Arctic to the tropical jungles of Asia. Prehistoric people picked them not only for their beauty, but for medicinal purposes. They then learnt to grow them from seeds, and these became the first cultivated flowers. By cultivating seeds, people were able to grow flowers wherever they wanted. Gardens began to flourish with the prettiest, sweetest-smelling flowers. By 3000 BC, Egypt and other Middle Eastern nations were growing a range of garden flowers including jasmine,  lilies and poppies in all their colours and varieties. Flowers were also used by the Egyptians to make perfume.
Today, there is a wide variety of cultivated flowers all over the world. Primrose is the common name for a group of plants which flower in the spring. The cultivated primrose is one of the favourite ornamental garden flowers. They come from wild primrose plants which still grow in woods and by roadsides in Europe. Unfortunately, some other types of flowers are becoming extinct because the land they are planted on is being cleared and used to build farms, towns or cities.
Many countries have annual flower shows. The Chelsea Flower Show in London is one of the most famous. Gardeners from around the world are invited to display miniature gardens and their best flowers at this well-known international exhibition. It occupies a vast area of land and is an event that attracts large crowds each year. Tourists come from all over for this celebration of spring. It is even attended by members of the British royal family.
