Are you looking to start a career within the floristry industry? This course is for you. You will learn about different flowers and plants and how to look after them.

You will also learn that there is more to floristry than flowers to be successful. You will need to understand your tools, environment and the finishing touches that make a difference. With this, you will develop an understanding of design principals and the skills needed to apply these to the creation of floristry products.

This course will give you an understanding of how floristry businesses operate and develop your skills to interact with customers and identify their needs.
