Why study for a florist?

Is there a nicer way to show your feelings and intentions than gifting a bouquet of well-chosen flowers? It is known that certain flowers have been assigned specific meanings so it should be taken into account what message we want the flowers to convey. The language of flowers has been around since ancient times, and people have always been driven to develop and use the language without words, i.e. the language of flowers. Although there is not a unique set of rules when it comes to interpreting flowers and their colours, but it rather varies from place to place, it is believed that flowers still carry messages and are connected to certain feelings.
Floriculture as a profession requires certain skills and creativity. Every florist should be able to select flowers suitable for a certain occasion and arrange them properly, while making sure that the flowers remain looking fresh as long as possible. Also, all florists should know the answers to any questions related to choosing and growing potted plants.
