Throughout the day there will be interesting talks from British and Dutch growers.
A Mini demo and talk from Master designer Manfred Hoffman and Florist and Product Manager, Merel van den Burg from Flowering Direct on the up and coming trends of 2020 and how, we as florists can translate the meaning of them through flowers.
After lunch, a fantastic opportunity to get hands on with the Just Chrysant team, participating in a flower battle. Choosing predominantly chrysanthemums from a flower bar to create a commercial bouquet in just 5 minutes, encouraging everyone to think outside the box and quick on the spot.
