Floristry has been practised for at least 4000 years, dating back to Egyptian florists who crafted bouquets, table decorations, funeral flowers and temple arrangements. Creating floral displays to mark special occasions is an ancient human custom. The Flower School continues this tradition by training new generations of florists – including you!
