Floristry Materials Are Supplied.

We provide the floristry materials for each term such as bowls, baskets, corsage and presentation boxes, florist foam, bowls, bases, ribbon, cellophane, bouquet holders, cards, floral tape and wire.

Fresh flowers are not included with the materials, as you would appreciate, these would not last. You don’t need to use expensive flowers for your lessons, the positioning is the important thing. Flowers such as carnations and chrysanthemums are ideal to use when you are learning. These flowers last well and are easy to handle. You can often buy flowers at a weekend market at a good price. Different varieties of flowers and foliage that grow in the garden can also be used for your lessons.

If you prefer you can use silk flowers and foliage for your lessons so you will have a permanent sample for each design. We include a silk flower and foliage price list and order form with the First Term.
