Florist of the Year Interflora Tatton Park Flower ShowFor over 40 years Interflora competitions have presented an opportunity for our finest floral designers to compete for the coveted title of Florist of the Year. Seen as the pinnacle of achievement and a great stepping stone towards future success, previous winners have gone on to win floristry competitions all over the world.

After a number of years of hosting the competitions behind closed doors, in 2011 the Grand Final was held in public at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show for the very first time.  This proved to be a roaring success with the general public so this year we’re returning to the show to celebrate the expertise and talent amongst our network of florists on an impressive public stage.
