Please could you recommend a flower school?
It’s wonderful that you’re interested in learning about floristry. Prior to choosing a school, I recommend spending some time considering what type of floristry style you’d like to learn. Then choose a flower school, which teaches your preferred style.
There are so many wonderful flower schools and florists who run courses. Take a read of these blog posts about just some of them on Flowerona. And you may also find these posts, which I wrote for Laura Ashley blog useful: London Floristry School Guide and UK Floristry School Guide.
Plus don’t forget adult education classes about floristry, which may be available at your local college.
