Could you name a single person who doesn’t like flowers?
Because we can’t. Honestly.
So how good would it be to work in an industry that is dedicated to flowers? As well as knowing that you are making people happy by supplying them flowers?
Sounds like a pretty great set up from where we’re standing.
Floristry is a growing trade in recent times as flowers, floral arrangements and masterpieces become more and more popular.
Whether it is just someone buying a bunch for a loved one, or having a floral centrepiece at a celebration, or even a bridal bouquet – there is always a need for flowers.

What is floristry?

Floristry is the art and profession of selling and arranging cut flowers.
Using their keen eye for detail, creativity and imagination, florists are required to think of and produce beautiful displays for their customers and clients.
The typical day-to-day duties of a florist include:

  • Ordering a range of flowers
  • Constructing bouquets, floral arrangements, wreaths and displays
  • Advising customers on the correct flowers for their occasional needs
  • Informing customers on aftercare for the flowers
  • Arranging delivery for flower orders
  • Setting up floral arrangements at events
