You probably buy flowers every week and just put them straight into a vase, or love seeing flowers in your garden and wish to cut them and create a flower arrangement for your home or for a gift. You may wish to change your career and become a florist. So, If you’re interested in learning how to arrange flowers or know someone who is, you have landed in the right place! Welcome to Rose Cottage.
We would like to be the bridge between your desires and your unexploited potential in flower arrangement. We offer workshops, courses, and classes for everyone.
