Our Location - The Garden Florist at our home studios set within our garden down a quiet lane. This beautiful setting is both idyllic, relaxing and provides a wealth of inspiration for learning.

Our Tutors - Our classes are taught by me, Tina The Garden Florist or by one of our carefully selected tutors. I've spent my whole career within Floristry and Horticulture as a Lecturer, Curriculum Manager, Professional Gardener, and Business Owner.

Our Passion - As a qualified Lecturer I'm exceptionally passionate about the standard of teaching and learning within the industry. It’s this dedication to the industry and education that has enabled the garden florist to work with learners to achieve the corvetted RHS Medals at both the Chelsea Flower Show and BBC Gardeners World Show.

Our love - Our teaching inspiration comes from a walk in the garden or potter around the fields with the ever changing seasons there's always something to capture the imagination. We're passionate about working with seasonal flowers and foliage in a sustainable way in all of our classes!

It’s this combination of Horticulture and Floristry that really does make the garden florist unique!
