Starting out in the world of flower arranging can be very exciting and also so very confusing. What cut flower goes with what? How do I extend the life span of the cut flower? What are the methods used to extend the life of each cut flower?

I am very passionate about working with cut flowers and making them last longer.

So many questions that at the time I would of paid my weight in rose petals to know. In the process of becoming a florist I made a promise to myself, that one blooming day I would share my floral experience with others.
