Isobel is a skilled florist with many years experience. Her passion for flowers and plants began at an early age trailing up and down the garden after her dad, who was him-self a dedicated gardener and flower lover….As a teenager, a year at Broomfield college studying Horticulture was followed by a 3 year course at The Welsh College of Horticulture studying Floristry and Flower production.
Over the next few years Isobel gained a wealth of experience working in different shops, teaching floristry at Broomfield College engaged in training and development in the industry. During this time Isobel was able to attend the European School of Floristry, visiting many flower and plant growers in the UK and Holland on many occasions, and also gain the Society of Floristry Diploma and National teaching certificates. Isobels love and passion for flowers continues...
