The relationship a florist has with flowers is truly one of a kind. Each flower has its own natural characteristics and individual personality. Some types of flowers get along well together, while others do not. Did you know some flowers can flourish and grow to music? A variety of them even have their own music they prefer. It is a florist’s job and many times a joy to make floral arrangements. There are many tricks and techniques that are involved in creating them. An excellent way to start learning the art of flower arrangement is to select a single flower in season or a favourite and let it guide you. In this course, you will learn helpful techniques and procedures that will help you carefully consider what the world about you has to offer, such as containers for the arrangement, flower and plant materials. Once you have chosen, it will be important to remember how and where the display will be used.
