An Exciting Career in Floristry

The Floristry Course covers how to find a position as a florist, how to open your own florist shop, how to buy an established business or start a florist business from home.

With very little outlay you can start up a profitable career in floristry. Profits are higher than in many other businesses. The profit margin on make-up work such as a bowl, basket and funeral tributes is often 200% or more and much higher for bridal designs. Weddings can be very profitable.

As well as creating the floral designs for the bride, bridesmaids, flower girls, corsages and buttonholes, you will often be asked to arrange the flowers for the church and the wedding reception. You can make hundreds of dollars from one wedding alone. The cost of your course fees can be repaid many times over.

Floristry For Your Own Enjoyment

Learn floristry for your own enjoyment so you can create beautiful flower arrangements for your home, family and friends.

You will impress family, friends and acquaintances with your new found floristry and flower arranging skills and you will be surprised at how much you will be in demand.

Flowers will always be needed for weddings, birthdays, mothers’ day, anniversaries, funerals, get well wishes, new babies and many other occasions.
